    Thumbs up Good Old Cold Christmas Church - April 2012


    While I was in the area I decided to visit this place, it was a brilliant sunny day all apart from when I packed up to head home...then the rain started, I wont bore you lot with orb pics as I seemed to have picked up plenty, had camera issues in this place though, memory card was saying error, battery died inside, then sprung to life again once I went back outside, yet I had to climb the stairs again.

    I enjoyed the visit, even if it was a shell with some graffiti and broken tombstones

    Thanks for looking!

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    Nice one mate, went over there last time about a year ago, the face on the door hadn't been scrawled over by the spray can idiots then.

    I first visited the tower (to give it it's proper title, The Church of St Mary and All Saints, Thundridge), about 35 years ago, the doors were not then blocked up, there was no graffiti and high up on the walls, inside, were the remains of a couple of framed tapestries (just the diamond shaped frames with remnants of cloth still attached), quite surprising really as the 12thC church that was originally attached to the 15thC tower was demolished in 1853
    It made the news again last year when the farmer that has the fields adjacent to the church had a bit of a wobbly after a few too many sherbets

    I dont usually like grafitti, but that face in the first pic looks amazing!Doesnt look out of place like most does, it kind of compliments the place. I will have people chasing me with pitchforks for saying that! Great report
