Photo-a-Day  (Thursday, 13th June, 2013)

St Nat's


St Nat's
St Nat's Platt Bridge, revealing the newly completed repairs. Note how the pointed roof has gone, and possibly a flat or hidden sloping one used to replace it.

Has anybody else noticed that Ernest hasnt contributed for a while?
Are you ok out there Ernest ??

Yes taken from the disused railway embankment...how old is St Nats? The red brickwork looks like Accrinton Huncoat made there in Lancashire. Blackpool tower foundations are built from the same type of bricks. Well done Andrew.

31st May was Ernest's last comment, on photo-a-day, Jean F(Wales). He could well be on holiday somewhere.

A long time ago I met a man who, as a child had seen St. Nats being built, he & his mates also used to lie in wait for Formby senior & his mates going by & throw stones at them.

St Nathanials Church was built in 1905 so it is a comparatively modern structure.I think it would be a pity if the turret was replaced with a flat roof it would look odd to say the least.
