Standish, St Wilfrid, Lancashire, **

I wish I could have captured the beauty of the interior, but I was rushed by the parish priest, who was on his way out. The exterior “stands big and black, defying the surrounding housing estates, motorways, flyovers and superstores. Damn the lot of them, it seems to cry, and erects a battlemented gatehouse as if to keep them out.”
