Those trees have grown quite a bit since I first went around the back of St Mary’s 60 odd years ago. I imagine it’s gated off these days.

There has been a recent attempt to revive the St Bernadette theme by the RC Church recently. Some partial relics were sent around the country, sparking some interest among elderly parishioners and lapsed faithful.
Grottos like this one were once fairly common, even in Catholic Primary Schools, less so now. One near me keep their wheelie bins in the shelter.
This one looks ok.
