    Default St. Saviour's Church, Bacup May '15


    It would appear that alongside my usual love of industrial locations, Churches and Schools are my new 'thing' this year. St. Saviour's has been on my list for a long time but with it being so far away I never had a proper chance to do it. However it was definitely a fixture on the list for myself and Landie Man's northern tour, and we turned up not knowing whether or not it would be accessible or not owing to the prior knowledge that it gets sealed up quite regularly. To be honest I thought we'd turn up to find it sealed but I was very happily wrong.

    We arrived in torrential rain which in some ways helped us keep a relatively low profile as we walked up to the church past the inhabited house on the driveway as nobody in their right mind would be outside or keeping watch at the windows in the weather that day. After a bit of a faff and a search and a wiggle we were delighted to be standing inside, and walking into the main part of the church my jaw dropped seeing the grandeur of it all. The rain continued to pour down whilst we were inside which provided a constant drumming background noise as we photographed the interior, and to be honest I think I was so in awe of the beauty that I didn't take as many photographs as I should have done. I'd happily go back though so that's not too much of an issue ;)

    It's actually - surprisingly - not as big as it looks, in fact I thought it was much bigger than it was before stepping foot inside. Still an amazing space and one of my favourite churches I've been able to poke around in.
