    Default Abandoned Church (St Giles)


    Until November 2006 the church still performed an annual service but unfortunatly it is now in a state of disrepair so a decision was made to close it until renovation work could be carried out to make the tower safe.
    The body of the church was re-built in 1838. The tower is original 14th century work.






    The roof is now leaking and the walls are damp :(




    Close up of the organ


    The original entrance


    Bits of the original church used in the re-build




    The Church path is now just a field

    What a cute little church. Please tell me that you tried playing the organ. :)

    That water seepage will take hold in no time - it would be a crime to see the place rot...

    I love the way that original details were incorporated into the re-build. Lovely little place...looks like an idyllic setting too.
    Nice find, Losttom. :)

    Such a lovely place and great photos. It is a disgrace that places like this are lost and I wish I had the money to save it from being wrecked.
