Parish Church
« on: May 10, 2017, 10:22 AM »
I Went to a History Forum meeting yesterday and some one was saying that the Parish Church could be closing its doors soon due to only a handbill of people attending It is such a shame that a Church like that is having to close the building as been there since the 12th Century and  was built were another Church stood this is a sign of times now.

Very sad news, I'm not a religious person but still feel it's a shame to see these magnificent buildings fall on hard times, the Church itself is rich in assets but not as financial as it used to be.

So sorry to hear this news. The Parish Church has been a  reminder of Ashton for many people over the years, and though I have not been a regular church goer for many years, I think it's such a shame to lose something that has been a part of Ashton for so long.
