    Default Church of St Michael - August 2017


    Urbex outing goes right at last,



    Before the main highlight was visited, I stopped off at this redundant church to try out my tripod again. All the shots i've taken since 2016 have been handheld. Along with that, I now carry a pair of binoculars with me for all the flat areas like Cambridgeshire.

    History: The church is grade ii listed, It dates mainly from the 13th century. A battle-mented parapet was added to the tower in the 15th century, and the south porch was built in the 16th century. The east wall has been rebuilt in the late 18th century. The reason for it's redundancy, back in the 1970s? was because of it's remoteness. My opinion, it's a lovely little place, even some natural decay.
