WYCH HOUSE LANE 1974
Here's the row of buildings along the left hand side of Wych House Lane which we talked about HERE. Middlewich's original Catholic Church was here and I think the likeliest candidate for the honour is the building towards the far end of this group. Unfortunately I don't think I have a closer view of this, but I think it may, at one time, have had vaguely ecclesiastical- looking windows (Did it? Or is my mind playing tricks?). The other buildings are in typical 'salt works' style - hastily and badly built and not made to last. The other possibility is that the church was demolished to make way for these buildings, which would have had to be a very long time ago, so I think it unlikely.
