Re: church

Mr Tealeaf, perhaps you may wish to contribute an over view of Church as it exist now and a potted history of what is. Just to open things up for those who may be interested, but have no ideal of where or what church is.

Re: church

Church is a very small but tight knit community, or at least it was when i lived there( my mum and step dad, and brother and sisters still do). Mainly known for the large church at the church kirk end, and the awful smell from the 'bone factory'

You're talking about the people at the junk shop at the corner of Henry street & Barnes Street. She ended up being fished out of the canal at Church, he remarried about 6 weeks later and a month after that he was dead, if I recall.
