The Rededication of the Walmesley Chapel

As you can see from the pictures below all went well on the two days of celebration at the end of the Heritage and Conservation Project. We were very pleased to welcome Lord Newport the son of the present Earl of Bradford and Gareth Williams the curator of Weston Park the home of the Bridgeman family in Shropshire. Lord Newport is a direct descendant to Canon GTO Bridgeman who was the Rector who brought the Altar panels to Wigan. We were also pleased to see Christopher and Trudy Forrest Canon Malcom Forrest’s brother

Heritage Open Days

 

This year they run between Thursday the 8th and Sunday 10th of September. As part of this we will be displaying the Mortlake Tapestry given to us in 1643 by Bishop Bridgeman who was also Rector of Wigan.

 

This will be the first time it has been on display since the 1950’s.

It appeared on the Antiques Road Show in 2002

 

Church will be open to view the tapestry and all the other beautiful things inside from 10.30 till 3pm on Saturday 10th

 

More details about the tapestry can be seen on the Needlework page of this website,
