The Visit
Considered this one in the past but lots of activity next door at the tile shop so difficult to access unnoticed at times. Passing on an early morning we thought we'd have a quick look about. Lasting memory of this place is the pigeon sh*t! Never seen it so deep anywhere :(

The History
Built in 1861, St Joseph's Catholic Church is a grade II listed building on the fringe of Wigan town centre and was the Sunday school of a certain George Formby.

It's been closed since 1995 and is a burden around the church's neck. They (and Wigan Council) are hoping someone comes along and takes it under their wing in this quarter's redevelopment of the mills and waterfront area.

This one gives an idea of the level of pigeon sh*t in there :(

It's one of those sites that does not feature too much because a lot of the time it gets locked down due to where it is. It's pretty trashed, but there are some nice shots to be had, which you seem to have found!
