    Default Church of St. Faith June 2014


    Also known as Stanley Royd asylum chapel, this church opened in the 1800's I believe, it was adjoining to Stanley Royd lunatic asylum, the first institiution of West Riding General Asylums Committee, which opened in 1818, I haven't completed much research yet so I'll probably add it later. For now all I can tell you is that the church has been for sale since as long as I can remember, it was eventually sold but arsonists set it on fire, unfortunately it was completely demolished in December 2014 and I haven't seen it recently but they're probably building on the land.



    This was one of my first abandoned shoots and I was too scared to go inside to I only have exterior shots, these are the unedited images.
