Another view of Livesey's yard, this time taken looking west. The concrete batching plant on the right appears to be almost completed in this shot. I think the chimney in view is that of Eckersley's mill, but what are the names of the two churches, anybody ?, Albert ?, Maureen ?, David ?. Incidentally, these pictures appear here courtesy of Sandra's brother, who's image can be viewed @ item #:27360.

I think the church with the spire is St Thomas's, C of E, and the one on the right is St Joseph's R.C.

Ozy. Tuddy is correct in his comment.

It surely is a great pity that Christian churches are being made defunct, St Joseph's, now no more, yet others non Christian churches appear to be thriving. Is St Thomas's church still an active church?. I mentioned on a much earlier entry, that I have been informed that Sacred Heart Church, at Springfield has now been renamed St Edward's.

St.Thomas's Church in Caroline Street was demolished in the 1970's.You're right traditional Christian Churches seem to be closing their doors whilst Community and Evangelical Churches appear to be better attended now.spz0
