    Sqwasher & I had a few hours to kill on the way to Barrow In Furness for my 'keeper for a day' pressie. We wanted to call in at Whittingham on route, however, first we wasted far too long trying to access St Josephs in Preston. Much to our disappointment only external pics were possible & after being moved on by security we only had an hour or so remaining for Whittingham. With time limited we only explored Cameron House & externally viewed St Johns Chapel. We got as far as the water tower but alas had overstayed our time that day! :(
    On with the pics...

    The elusive St Josephs first

    A view of a skylight that's not long for this world!

    It’s hard walking quietly on here!

    A rather appealing bath...mmm

    These were passable with care
