Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 2nd April, 2017)
Church and Mill
Mick, is this connected to the smithy and a pub?
Very monochrome & a very somber image. I like the angular shapes, good photo
Fitting photo for Sunday.
This was the church I attended..my parents Grandparents and Brother were all married there,baptised,etc..I have many happy memories of this lovely church,now left to the pigeons flying in and out of the holes in the roof...very sad.
I remember going in here in 1971 with my boyfriend,(churches were left open then) who had been a parishioner there when he was younger.I also went to the final Mass . It is a shame it closed, especially as it used to be a very busy parish.
We got married there,quite a while ago.
That is definitely different. A skillful blending of triangles, Well done Mick
My gran lived opposite the church...my dad did many a repair to the roof....gran use to hate seeing him so high up there!
Ste..was your Mum related to Westheads.
A triangle has all equal sides, a triangle with different sides is called scalene. We are clever here in Wigan. Alan (on Vancouver Island)
Now, time for my Sherry, cheers.
Sorry Ste..I should have said your Gran..not your Mum.
My husband and his family worshipped at St Joseph's; his parents too were married there.
It's so sad that the church has closed - it played such an important part in people's lives, and of course Trencherfield also played a huge part in people's working lives. There must have been a real community spirit in the area and a great sense of belonging. Thank you Mick - a nostalgic photograph.
Hi Garry. You are dead right. I've just looked it up, never heard of it before. We are non too smart over here ! Enjoy your sherry....scotch is my tipple.
Pat,the community was second to none..it really was..and I have so many memories of Wallgate and the church I could write a book.
Put three dots anywhere other than in a straight line,now draw a line to each dot,and you get a triangle,and add the angles up and it will be 180 degrees,a triangle is just a three sided figure,some have special names that's all.
Maureen...yes my Gran was
She had a shop across from the church
