Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 14th November, 2019)
Real name is St Elizabeth of Hungary, its got the most fancy brickwork and roof tiles in all of the Wigan churches
A nice photo Ronald. I particularly like the supporting group of unfenced 'stones, and swathe of sober green grass, mid-division, but oh the bountiful berry picker(?). Well done!
Restored a few years ago - roof and brickwork.
Money ran out when it was first built, hence the northern transept was bricked off. The flat side is visible in this photo, taken from an unusual angle.
Excellent Ron, as usual.
You don't see all the intricate detail from the front aspect on the main road, it looks quite plain. You wouldn't think there was a Rose window either. The church is in a nice setting from behind in the fields.
That's right Veronica: The church in a nice, unobstructed setting.
Nice photo Ron, if you are going to Gorton Wells be careful, the footing could be treacherous. I used to go to this church confirmation, scouts etc:
