Lottery money for crooked spire

AN ENGLISH heritage and lottery fund grant of more than £300,000 is helping to restore the crooked spire of a Lancashire church.

Our Lady and St Hubert's, in Great Harwood, Blackburn is a Grade II* listed building designed by E W Pugin. Age and the elements weakened the structure of the spire causing it to bend and prompting fears of collapse.

Work on the roof and spire should be completed by October.

The ornate spire contains a statue of a hunting hound in honour of St Hubert, the patron saint of hunting.
