This week's Sky Watch shows St James' Church on Cowhill Lane, which punctuates the sky with its twin spires.
The church of St James the Apostle, opened in 1865. The land was given by the Earl of Stamford and most of the £3,500 cost of building was met bt mill owner Oldham Whittaker.
There is a plaque commemorating John Bradford of Manchester, a Christian martyr burnt at the stake in 1555.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
