    Hey Sal thanks for the bump, I've been meaning to return to the
    Whitfield tabernacle site for quite a while and to be honest it had
    slipped my mind. Hopefully I'll have a look before the end of the
    week, theres also a burnt out Methodist Chapel just along the
    road with a large overgrown graveyard which I'll visit too if I've
    enough time?

    Hi Bishop
    Sorry to bump this yet again (having a boring Friday night so the :icon_evil is making work for idle hands! :D), but did you check it by any chance? Love to see pics of the Chapel & graveyard.
    Cheers

    It would be sad if they did, it makes you wonder what this country is coming to allowing a grade 1 listed building to get in that sort of state:(

    I look forward to hearing what became of it:)?:(?

    Freaky I was thinking about the Whitfield Tabernacle earlier today. There's a distinct chance I'll have a few hours to kill tomorrow morning/early afternoon so I may take a look? Just along the road roughly half a mile away is the shell of a Methodist Chapel with an overgrown graveyard, if I do have time tomorrow or perhaps on sunday then I will certainly try and visit both.

    Ah I've just remembered another chapel I meant to visit. Crap. Ok I'll try and do all three tomorrow morning and post pics tomorrow night.

    Burn out Methodist Chapel which I've been meaning to visit for about six months.

    Birds eye feature on LocalLive rocks you click on north, east etc to rotate the camera (I didn't know about this until Krela told me).

    Whitfield Tabernacle update as requested.

    Here's a pic of the Tabernacle building from June last year.



    The original Tabernacle doesn't seem to be any different to when I last visited.

    I did walk all the way around it looking for access but its secure which is good in some ways and bad in others (I want interior pics). Pics below taken yesterday.



    Tabernacle roof.



    Sign on the front of the Tabernacle.



    Tabernacle side.



    Tabernacle side and the expression 'No shit Sherlock!' springs to mind.



    The back of the Tabernacle.



    Side of the Tabernacle.



    More to follow, namely the Church Warden's cottage, cemetery and the larger replacement for the tabernacle the Master's Church.

    Walk up the road and swing a right and you're on to the High St, walk past a few absolutely appalling tat shops and you reach the gates to the replacement for the Whitfield Tabernacle, the Master's Church.

    When I last visited the pathway to the church was heavily overgrown but now as you can see its been cleared.



    Now if I was 50 years older...



    View from the other side of the gates.



    Parish notice board.



    Front of the Master's Church.





    Master's Church interiors next.

    The cemetery. There's more snaps in the Religious section of the galleries.



    Robert Palmer? Oh a different one, I see...
