spire and tower

St Peter's and St Paul's Church in Ormskirk

 

There are only three churches in England to have both a spire and a tower. The tower was built to house the bells from Burscough Priory in 1540. The church itself dates from 1170

The vicar at this church has known my husband since he was a little baby. Now, my in-laws are moving south and selling their bungalow in Burscough
