    Default All saints church


    Whilst heading to the meet up I met up with mookster and he showed me a few places and I said about a redundant church I have wanted to see for a long time.he was keen to see it too.we were both shocked by the grandness of this place,it is still very clean,although the signs of no work done on it is starting to show inside and out.i have been a lot of redundant churches but this is by far the grandest I have seen..the church was built in 1876 at the cost of 800,by the the earl of a large estate,but was out of reach for a lot of the local village.the design of the church to me is very Italian.the church is built of limestone ashlar and has a large internal rotunda with a copper covered dome.the church has statues and tapestries and wooden chests.with the decline of people using it,the church shut in 1980.































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    What an incredible place! I love that dome on the top. It's a shame a place like this has to shut
