Wourld like to have a picture if anyone can tell me where I may locate one. I visit that area and have friends in the area if a picture can be located. Thanks for a reply.

I would also be interested in having a photograph of the interior of the church. I was confirmed and then married there. My eldest child was baptised there. Saturday evening there would be a 'church social' held in the National School next to the church. Music supplied by a small group - accordian, piano and drums. Happy days!

My parents Margaret and Jack Metcalf were married in this church. We have a photograph of the congregation stood on the steps outside the main church doors.

It was heartwarming to see a print of the inside of St Mary's Church where Eric and I were married in 1958 and our son David was baptised in 1960. When we made a return visit from New Zealand in 2001 only the spire was still standing and I must say it brought a lump to our throats. It was a lovely church where I spent many happy hours. thank you Leodis for this site we are so enjoying visiting our old haunts.
