    Default The church institute..


    Visited this place after dropping the girlfriend off at the airport.this was a former reading room for the local parish.built in the late nineteenth century at a rough cost off 163 10s..it was used by the locals to escape and read books and newspapers.i think later with some games I found it may have been used as a small community centre.i really enjoyed my visit here after randomly coming across it doing some research.even though it's only one room and a kitchen and a toilet the colours were nice.prob a weekend afternoon on a hot day was not the best time to go with lots of people about.































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Looks like somewhere you can go to chill out and have a natter with your friends over a cup of tea. The place is looking good except for a spot of paint.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    That is really nice. Decay is setting in well, I'd like to see this again in a few years time, hopefully still without chav influence. Nice work.
