Did you ever live in Parson Cross? (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

Has that got owt to do with them metal barrels found in littlewoods that said "warning highly flammable" and so what was the first thing somebody did? drop a match in one which sent a flame about 20ft up in the air which singed the eybrows of everyone leaning over the barrel ?

 

Not that one, the one Ime on about is when the pensioners flats were been

built and about six houses on Knutton cres had to be evacuated,this was a gas bottle that they just turned the tap on then lit, then they scarpered. they think its tough on the cross now? they ve never lived.

I've been trying to find out when St Cecelia's church was built.

I grew up thinking it was a really old building, but was told recently that it was built at the same time as the estate? Is this true?

That seems about right as the website says it's "over 70 years old" which puts it at 1939/40

Sadly the building is in bad need of repair and its future would seem to be in doubt, according to the site. Shame! I'm not a church person but it is a lovely building.

In 1971 we used to watch Pete Howe and his band (Dave Heywood and Phil Johnson) rehearsing in the cellars underneath the main crypt. Spooky but very memorable, to follow the genesis of such songs as "King of the saucepans" and "Hit me over the head with a fire extinguisher,,"

Pete and Phil both sadly now passed...
