Really nice photo, walk past this church many times when visiting family in Marus Bridge. I often walk to Wigan and back.

Foundation stone was laid on 1st September 1863 and took 3 years to build. Cost estimate was over £15,000 (£1.02 million as of 2012).
Since 1970 it`s St.Jame`s with St.Thomas.

Irene, your comment (P-a-D 7th Sept.`12, posted 8th Sept.`12 at 14:12) "Why are women often referred to as "birds"? Is it because of the worms they pick up? "
The answer to your first question is that women are flighty !!
