    Default Church of St. Peter & St. Paul - March 2013


    Church of St. Peter & Paul
    March 2013


    The Church of St. Peter & St. Paul was built in 1911 after an increase in population meant that the original 1882 (the first Church in the village) was too small.

    In December 2007, all services through the winter months had to take place in the original building, which is located just in front of this Church, due to the poor state of the Church building. Numerous meetings were held regarding the Church development for a new Worship Centre together with the development of housing on the present site and the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul was declared redundant in March 2009.



    After entering the former Church, it was clear that metal thieves had already gained entry and cleared the building of anything worth any value or interest. This isnít the first time that thieves have targeted the Church of St. Peter & St. Paul though, in previous years the Church was targeted several times and high valued items such as a brass eagled lectern and a brass alter cross (valued at around £10,000) were stolen.



    A demolition order has been granted on this former Church so itís life is now very limited.



    Despite not being religious ourselves, we would much rather see this Church brought back to itís former historic glory rather than the 9 overpriced residential properties that have been approved by the local Council.

    Great stuff, although the poor church has seen better days.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
