Photo-a-Day  (Tuesday, 2nd February, 2016)

From St. Wilfrid's

From St. Wilfrid's
Market Place Standish in the snow, from St Wilfrid’s roof. Note the, formerly the Eagle and Child on the left, restored and preserved for posterity by its owners over the past two years. A magnificent job, I think - well done.

I agree Rev Long, a good job all round and an expensive one as well i imagine. I can see the house in which i lived from 0 years until 24, great memories, thank you.

I work for a firm in Adlington named ,Naylor and Walkden. One of the lads in the joiners shop had the job of replacing the timber stocks, guessing about ten years ago,he took the old ones out to copy them using Green Oak,the same timber used around Wigan Pier walkways .Nice winter scene photo, Rev David.

Very picturesque. The well, the stocks, the cross and the old-style street lamps make and olde-worlde scene, to which the snow adds an extra charm.

A very pretty scene..almost like a watercolour painting by one of the old masters.

Great pic David!
Maureen...hows the acrylic painting doing?
This would be a great monochrome subject!

David Barker - is Tony Walkden still involved with the business? I seem to remember the firm closing, then reopening again with some of the existing staff. Knew Tony very well, mainly from nights in the White Crow pub.
