I drive past here daily and saw them pointing the wall at the front. Didn't realise they'd done the whole church. Let's hope the church is still there in 100 yrs time, no matter what it's used as.
Thanks David.

So nice to see such a nice church in good condition. Such a shame to see the church disappearing like they are. I remember when I was a child my mum taking me to church. People used to go in there dozens. Thanks for the memories Dave

I go past on Tuesday nights and two men are doing the gardens.They seem to keep them pretty tidy for saying there is only two of them

Forty two years ago this August we were married in this church, Father Mariorty was the priest, a fine man!. Myself and my wife attended Mass here two weeks ago on one of our visits back to where we grew up, we have lived over in Yorkshire for the past 28yrs so its great to come back now and then. Look at Wiganworld, Aspull Our Ladys school, we have recently posted two photos you may find interesting if you grew up in the village and attended Our Ladys school back in the 50s.
