Can you guess the location of this month’s postcard poser?

It’s St Hilary Parish Church in Wallasey Merseyside formerly Cheshire. Rebuilt bat 1856 when the old church burnt down after the churchwarden stoked up the boilers to warm the church. A smell of cooked bacon could be smelt all over the village as slaughtered pigs were hung in the old tower which is all that is left now of the old church.

Wendy Bennett is correct. St. Hilary’s Church also has a peel of six bells.
