    Default Slebech Church, South Wales


    visited here whilst on holiday, my gran had it marked on an OS map as 'remains of' and its apparently a templar church dad joined us too much to his dislike as he wanted to be on the beach, after a rough measure up on the map i decided it was about a 2 mile walk so off we went,

    still it was worth the walk the atmosphere here was quite something im not a relegious person and dont tend to like churches but i would happily make a return visit, not many pictures and they realy dont do the place justice









    unfortunatly we had ran out of drink with a 2 mile walk back, double unfortunatly the holy water didnt look to appetising

    oooooooooooooooooh i love remains of churches and abbeys etc. this one looks brilliant. do you know if there's a crypt or underground parts of the church? You've got some great pictures. There's just something special about them. More please.

    Cheers,

    :) Sal

    thats the only 3 i uploaded theres no end wherever i saved them on the computer ill stick up when i find them

    no hint to any crypts, the bell tower is barred off and theres a small plaque in the entrance along with a ring out a tree trunk from a yew tree blieved to be over 1000 years old

    there was a recent thread on 28dl with another abandoned church at Slebech there's a crypt at that one

    Nice one! I echo Sal about churches...love 'em too. There's just something wonderful about the architecture and the feeling you get around them. :)
    Cheers Mr Sam.
