The steeple of Prescot Parish Church just as the sun was going down.
Local history has always fascinated me and I often blog about it across Sefton and indeed Merseyside and West Lancs.
This piece – see link below – in the Liverpool Echo took my eye:-
Prescot’s connections with clocks is well known but this significant Lancashire town also has some interesting historic buildings too – my shot of its parish church heads up this posting.
Maghull Wind Orchestra’s latest appearance at Prescot Festival turned out to be a big hit as Prescot Parish Church was packed out to hear them close out this annual festival of the arts with soprano Danielle Louise Thomas.

The now well established Prescot Festival runs from 21st June until 30th June this year and Maghull’s very own Wind Orchestra has been invited to perform in the finale with soprano soloist Danielle Louise.
I hear that the orchestra went down very well at Lydiate Festival recently so if you want to hear them you know where to go – a quick trip down the M57 to Prescot on Sunday 30th June.
A theme I am pursuing in 2014 is war memorials because of the 100th anniversary of the start of WW1 here is another beautiful war memorial.
It stands within the grounds of Prescot Parish Church.

Maghull Town Councillor Jen Robertson was playing with Maghull Wind Orchestra in a ‘Last Night at the Proms’ type finale for this 9 day festival on Sunday 29th June so I went along to hear them at Prescot Parish Church. The festival is now in its 10th year and its web site is at:-
The steeple of Prescot Parish Church as the sun was going down. I just managed to keep the scaffolding out of the shot.
The Church is undergoing significant restoration following a deathwatch beetle attack on its wooden beams so there was scaffolding everywhere inside and out. However, it did not dim the event at all and the audience seemed to be having a great time waving their Union and English flags.
Here are a couple more photos I took whilst we were there:-
