Glendene and the church / chapel in Wilpshire - 1907

Just for a break from the John Eddleston photos from the 1960's, here's a couple of postcard images of Wilpshire from 1907.
The upper photo is of Glendene, which stands towards the Ribchester Rd end of Knowsley Rd and was built and lived in by a local (Blackburn) mill owner, whose name escapes me at the moment and the lower photo is of the little church / chapel, which stands almost opposite Glendene on the other side of Knowsley Rd (though its front is on Ribchester Rd).
Neither of these buildings has changed much in appearance over the 106 years since the photos were taken.
