The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Webteam: October 2015
St Alban's 500 year old Church Tower is now bathed in light.
The Tower is the tallest building in Tattenhall. Interestingly it was once taller still, the Tower having been topped by a slated square spire (of the type still surviving at Waverton Church). Because of its then dilapidated state (1832), it was decided that the spire be removed.
For those of you that missed the 'switch on' or have yet to see the floodlit Tower, then some images are attached to this story.
Just in case you didn't know, 'Alban' is regarded to be Britain's first Christian Martyr.
St Alban's martyrdom is particularly remembered on and around 22 June each year.
Following your fantastic feedback, we are now attaching captions to our images.

If you are particularly interested in the history of St Alban's Church, then an excellent book written by local resident Kenneth Senar is available for purchase at the Church.
