    Default St Andrews church East of England


    Hay folks well this weekend was a very much a religious urbex weekend as myself and Kathyms spent the day hunting down derelict churches and managed to do four then the light began to fall.
    Now as you will tell this one is a Perl of dereliction and was my favourite one of the day and Iím sorry but Iím not giving any clues of its location away so please donít waste your time with pmís.
    So a little history
    There has been a church on this site from around 1200AD but the one we see today was rebuilt in the 15th century.
    The tower contains a fine ring of six bells dating from the year 1603 1762 1792 and 1622 these where rehung in an iron frame in 1902 with the last was added in 1905. The clock was erected in 1897 as a jubilee memorial.
    St Andrews church was declared redundant and vested in the redundant churches fund on the 1st of august 1986 repairs to the roof glazing and interior have been carried out but works have come to a stand still for lack off funds
    And last couple of years the lead had been stolen of the roof which has been repaired but water damage has coursed a fair amount of damage to the lime stone pillars


    on with the pics














































    thanks for looking and i will post the other churches soon
