    Talking The Small Church Of Orison - June 2017


    The Small Church Of Orison




    I was away recently risking life an limb climbing mountains and camping rough, which allowed me to notice I was rather close to an old abandoned dwelling I had explored sometime ago along with others still on the burner, now before I begin properly I have tonnes of places I have yet to upload, which leaves me thinking I should, but this report is short and sweet compared to the others.


    I wanted to take a look down this road which seems no one goes down. This area is rather unique as it holds 5 abandoned houses a church and a very old and broken windmill, I had explored the old dwellings/houses before but never the church, so as I was close by I told my partner we are making a detour, after some off-roading in a car not built for it, we arrived to my surprise the houses all remained untouched and like they did before, but my eyes was on the church which looked how I remembered it.

    After parking up outside the church I walked towards the door and pushed it forward, bingo its open, don't know why I never bothered with this place before, I guess the houses had my interest more, but may as well make it a clean sweep of them all.

    We walked into the church and instantly the floors below us was rather wet and bending, treading lightly we began to take in the dereliction, some old books stated 2003 and others stated 2001 so I go with the 2003 it has not been in use by, the green on the walls was so eye catching and beautiful, a fair amount remained, shame the organ is rather neglected and bits falling off it, I did like the colouring books remained to keep youngsters happy on services. (shame I had no crayons!) other bits an pieces remained as well, but what a beautiful place of worship this was on a narrow road. Its a strange place this as I mentioned the abandoned houses before and the broken windmill, that is all that seems to be around this area which is pleasant and peaceful, after 20 odd minutes and getting a few shots, it was indeed time for food but unlucky for us no civilization for over ages.

    On with the shots.





































    Sorry for the lack of input into uploading reports, it seems I am more out now than ever and usually up a mountain! Promise more soon this backlog will go down!!

    Really liked that. I find that when a place is small you tend to look at the finer details of a place and that's what you've done there, to great effect.

    As you know mate been doing exploring for ages, but find climbing mountains an going into caves more rewarding, still exploring things and photographing things though just when I can be bothered ha

    Glad you found this place Mockingbird. You would have liked it even better 53 years ago when a very friendly community sheltered two very wet motorcyclists caught in a torrential summer afternoon downpour! Happy times.

    Should have qualified my 'liked it even better' - the inhabitants just added to the photo opportunities of this place; perhaps the fact that my mate Tom was Welsh and spoke the dialect had a bearing? The three rolls of exposed film were in fact my first commercial success, and opened many doors for me over the years.

    That's a nice little church in need of a little TLC.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Wow I guess this brought back some memories for you, amazing in someway an yet again you prove such a credit to the forum. Amazing you know about this place in all fairness, I'm rather shocked in someway as this area itself is neglected by explorers let alone those just taking a stroll. I'm so glad I brought back some memories for you, an you are able to view this place from as it is now with my point of view on it. It's a beautiful church even the outside is rather welcoming compared to others :)
