Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 15th June, 2019)
The most famous landmark in Scholes - Anyone who left Scholes long ago and came back for a visit, ( shocked at the changes) would soon find their bearings, at the sight of the steeple.
Locks & canals fascinate me. Neptunes Staircase near Fort William is a sight to behold.
Just read a book, Idle Women ( aka Inland Waterways) by Susan Woolfitt who worked on canal boats during the war, what women they were !
Good Photo Mick, my mother was christened at St Catharines 1912, she married my father here 1934, my elder brother was Christened here 1935. Thanks Mick.
Some areas around Scholes still looks like the 1950s.
Soon find their bearings because little has changed.
Veronica , With the obvious and rapid decline of so many Christian churches in so many areas , your viewer , more likely, would return to a view of minaret or the dome of a mosque.
The sooner ALL religion is a thing of the past - the happier I'll be. Religion has set humankind back by thousands of years. Just as the UK was becoming more and more secular, other religious groups arrive to upset the secular apple cart....
Another steeple can just be seen in the distance - could it be St Joseph's?
My friend in Australia came back on a visit 5 years ago and was totally flummoxed at the change in Wigan since 1963 when she left.
