A RELIC OF MIDDLEWICH'S FIRST CATHOLIC CHURCH






A familiar sight to parishioners of St Mary's Roman Catholic Church in New King Street is this old cross, originally from the town's first Catholic Church and School in Wych House Lane, as featured in a recent diary entry by Malcolm Hough.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN WYCH HOUSE LANE

The cross, which dates back to the 1860s, was placed in the porch at St Mary's as a reminder of the Church's early days in Middlewich.

An explanatory plaque tells of the origins of the cross:

"This cross stood above the High Altar of the old School - Chapel in Wych House Lane. It is placed here to remind you to pray for the souls of the pioneer priests and parishioners of Middlewich"
