It's a terrible shame looking at these pictures. But the way it is took down is not the demolishers fault, they have got a job to do and they are doing it. The people who did nothing to stop this happening are the people to be angry at.
The way a church is taken down is no different to the way a factory is taken down. To be honest I am more sad at seeing rists being demolished than sacred heart - a church these days is nothing, but a factory with plenty of jobs in it means a lot. To me anyway, we can have hope in god or we can have hope in money, I know where my allegiance lies.

Organ Pipes....

Surely they are not wrecking the organ as well? I would have assumed those pipes would be easily salvagable?

The others I took of the Sacred Heart this morning - Mon16th - are really almost identical to yours. Will leave these demolition records to you. Regarding my Web -- the previous ones will not be used again. Am just waiting for info from Roy before publishing my new one.

Sacred Heart items

Hi, been talking with someone who is in the "know" a little bit. Regarding the huge marble war memorial which was just inside the entrance doors - there was talk apparently about re-siting this to the garden of a house on Hyndburn Road, where the first catholic church used to be (the transepts are now the two cottages near Hyndburn Park School) - then they discovered the marble used was only suitable for "indoor" use. Then they thought about putting inside the house at Gatty Park, but the whole memorial was too large. Now there's a chance it may by put, IN A GLASS TYPE BOX, outside St Mary's, Oswaldtwistle.
Everything else of interest from the church has, apparently, been sent all over Lancashire, to various Catholic Churches, ie. Manchester/Bury/Chorley.
I am hoping to find out more on this subject.
