Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 15th February, 2014)
St John's Methodist Church
Nice picture Harry....very bold statement....cheers!!!
Yes Lizzie, it should have read Bridge street Hindley. Maybe then people know where the church is!
Nice PIC.harry,well framed.
Garry the church is in Ladies Lane and the junction of Market Street. Bridge Street starts after Pennington Street.
Sorry should read Car Street not Pennington Street.
Nice shot Harry, though a bit of linear distortion has took the edge off for me
Thanks all. You are right Keith, John I held the camera up as high as possible to try and avoid it and even thought of asking to use the upstairs of the shop behind.
There is a recent photo in album showing the church over 100 years ago
About 3 weeks ago,I watched a bloke shin up the downspout of the apse,(I think that's the correct term),the sticky out bit to the right with the arched door below.He proceeded to scale the pitched roof by way of the stone copings on the edge of roof,crawled along the ridge tiles,rescued his escaped budgie,then came down again. Unbelievable.
