Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 23rd October, 2013)
Photo: Dave (Oy) (Nikon D800 with Nikon 24-70mm F/2.8 AF-S G )
A good picture, but very sad. Trees growing from the upper tower, anyone want to hazard a guess when it will be "no more".
What a transformation, usually see a totally different view of the church when driving along Caroline Street, amazing how a bit of thought can completely change a view, first class.
From this photo, there`s not much untoward but take a look at video on :-
Photo also gives false impression of it`s location - very crafty viewpoint, Dave! Is the store that was behind you Tile Mart Ltd.?
See photo`s in :-

An icon for all us old Wallgaters,Oy.We are all children once more making our way to school down Caroline Street.
Ernest - I was stood on the car park of Go Outdoors (formerly B&Q).
My beloved childhood church where I and my Brother were baptised ..as was my Dad,my Grandparents were married there..so where my parents as well as my Brother..and where I went every morning to 7-45 mass,every evening benediction..and anybody looking up at the front of the church will notice the statue of St Joseph which is still white despite it being exposed to traffic fumes for years.
Thanks, Dave. Have you read my comment at 22:24 on your 21st Oct.2013 P-a-D?
The last service at this old church was about 20 years ago, it is sad to see it looking like this.
Dave- Back in July 1988. My wife Bernie and i were Married in this Church and it is a shame that such a building is not now in use
Ernest no-one whats to read your boring comments. It's about time this was demolished by the council instead of historic buildings! Good photo by the way.
It still has it's bell . The local church here ( that is in use ) had it's bell stolen .They found it for sale in Wales !
Kev I like to read what Ernest as to say.
Speak for yourself Kev! I like to read what Ernest has to say - at least it is informative and useful. I do not know this Church but appreciate a great photo and viewpoint. Nice one Oy.
Yes I think it's about time it was pulled down, end of the day, there's no future for it and church congregation are less ans less each year...sadly.
Ernest - yes I have - I've tried 3 times now and I can't make any sense of it. Maybe just ask me a question rather than lead me through a trail going back 3 years?
Nice one Dave....Maureen.....a lovely story....cheers!!!
Sorry Dave. I wanted you to take an up-to-date photo of your 25th April 2010 P-a-D which would show the Piazza and Wigan Life Centre.
Ernie, the sign says "Comments"(on the photo).
Not an epistle on how good you are at googling...There's a good lad.:O(
I for one, don't like to be directed anywhere by strange men..;o)
