Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 14th April, 2012)
As far as it goes
Photo: Rev David Long (Konica Minolta Dynax 7D)
Was my suggestion of a lottery I made, in comment on the photo you had on 17th March Rev David, taken up? Where are the stones from?
Can anyone tell me where the iron columns in the church were cast?
talk about scrapping the barrel,this subject been on wigan world 5 times since january.we all know the steeple was leaning and there repairing it so next photo please when steaple completed thank you
I don't think they are scrapping the barrel - this church can be seen for miles around and a lot of people find it interesting, especially the ex-pats . Rev Long always gives some of the history and information about pictures he puts on this website.
once again im with wcml on this. its been milked that much this supject its now powder form.and maggie if your an ex-pat you dont have a say on the matter . you took off from england and could'nt of cared less whats happening in good old wigan. ;-(
i find it interesting but the good reverend and others dont need to keep taking pics of it every other week,thats all im trying to say maggie k,i think x pats would like to see diffrent parts of the borough from what they remember it like and if it has changed much, not a scaffold structure...didnt realise xpats could see it from were they are,haha
It's one one Wigan's landmarks.
It's one of Wigan's landmark.
WCML Needs spelling lessons. Back to school sunny boy.
I like birds.
I agree with Luke B, WCML definately needs to go back to school, make your mind up WCML is it a steeple or is it a steaple? Dirty Harry,s not much better, ''couldn't OF cared less'' are you sure you dont mean ''couldn't HAVE cared less''? Leave the Reverend alone, he,s doing a good job.
Its better than birds all the time!!!! No keep them coming!!!! It would be nice to save them as a set. In years to come book publishers will love them!!!!
the rev long does some wonderful pics,im not having a go,but 5 photos and 1 of the stones on the ground is enough of the church jonno,luke b,you understood what im writing so its good enough,but its all about opinions on wigan world not bloody spelling mistakes
english teachers,mr jonny and mr fuke u,have you ever herd of wigan speek!!...spelling mitsakes!! get a grip,good photo by the way vic
thanks dirty harry,we know what were on about dont we.
dirty harry - I did not say I am an ex-pat - I am just considering them. I was born within 100yds of this church and have lived in Wigan all my life, so I DO have a say. Anyway, the Reverend sent the photograph in but whoever chooses the photo a day thought it interesting enough to post it.
Nice to see the old spire being rebuilt but the view will not look the same without the lean!
I wonder if they'll ever fix the twisted spire at Chesterfield Parish Church? I doubt it as its a tourist attraction. Maybe Wigan council could learn something from that?
