General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
St Mary's Church was demolished because of subsidence. The old Ince 6 Foot mineworkings run underneath it (apparently very near the surface) and the church was starting to crack and collapse.
Also (as with most Christian buildings of worship) due to a drop in the number of attendees it was uneconomical to have such a large church.
