    Default Kinnell Parish Church, Scotland - October 2017


    Another home county derp I revisited with a camera on my trip. Last time I was in here was about 6/7 years ago and the roof was still a mess but hadn't completely collapsed.

    This is a short report compared to my usual 100 image standard!

    I do have a soft spot for this place, I used to drive past it a lot on the way to seeing my grandparents so I have watched it change over the years.

    I had intended to spend longer here, but I'd used up my last disposable P3 somewhere else beforehand and the rest were at my folks house in my other bag. You will note the epic pile of pigeon shit! Two snaps inside, that's as long as I can hold my breath for. Even with a mask on, I don't think I would have fancied wading through that crap even with rigger boots on.

    The church was built in 1855 and the architect was William Scott.

















    Thanks for looking!

    A nice church but a pity the roof is collapsing. Looks like the graveyard is still being used as I see fresh flowers and new gravestones.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    The graveyard is still used, some of the graves go back to the 1800's but there are some more recent family plots. A lot of the space is unused and Angus has a shortage of new plots in some graveyards (my brother in law is a grave digger so heard that from him) so the cemetarty will probably be used for generations to come.

    Good stuff, there's also an interesting WW2 RAF airfield nearby with a few relics.
