I pass St Joseph's everytime I go to Wigan, really is a great shame that it's falling in to dereliction.

Silly me..it wasn't coming on so I thought I'd slipped up somewhere..hence the double postings..and I'm supposed to be patient.

I belonged to St Williams Church really but I often went to 4 o'clock Mass at St Joseph's on Sunday afternoons. I was at the final Mass before it closed down on 27th October 1995. It was a lovely old church.
