    You'll be lucky, after the fire at St Faiths they put up grids over all the windows and re-did all the doors etc. I had another look last week just to add more to my archive but it was well locked up. It's a shame, but there's much more corruption around this decision than it appears on the surface.

    Going to be a Memorial Garden on the site now, according to the Demo team ?

    We managed to get into the Twin Towers which were the only things still intact after Secca had gone ( awaiting Demo the next day) Fantastic spiral staircase and a foot deep in Pigeon crap. A blizzard hit as we came out and me & my mate fell into the Crypt that had loose rubble over it lol

    Strange that i work in Stanley and never visited it before. My loss

    Just managed a very rough Video if it"ll upload

    St PETERS CHURCH. STANLEY. WAKEFIELD. - YouTube
