Church of St James, Daisy Hill, Westhoughton, Westhoughton - Bolton

Designed by Paley and Austin in red brick and slate and built in 1879 - 81, St James has a cruciform plan with a bell turret attached to the south wall. Vegetation has become established in the joints of the dual-pitched capping to the turret. This vegetation is now causing displacement of slates with the attendant danger of falling material. The area around the base of the turret is now cordoned off.
