    Default 'Praise' Methodist Church, Cornwall - March 2018


    A few weeks ago I went on a little road trip to Devon and Cornwall, and along the way I found this little church.

    As soon as I'd parked up across the road from it and got out, a man pulled up behind in his car and then asked me if I was going for a walk. "Yes", I said, and waited until he'd gone and then went into the churchyard.

    With hindsight I don't know why I did that - there was no reason why I couldn't go and have a look at the church. In fact it wasn't fenced off in any way AND the door was wide open! I wish I'd asked him about it now, as I can't find any history, not even a mention of it on the web.

    Amazingly, there was little sign of vandalism; all the decay seemed to be fairly natural. Although there wasn't that much to it, it was rather a peaceful little place to spend half an hour or so.

























    * This place was also known as 'Bastard Chapel' in another thread.

    No, I know the one you mean, but I had three places to go to on that day. I might make a return at some point and have a look then.
