    Default The church of St Sarah of the drums


    I have 2 reasons for the odd title of this post
    1, I have no idea what its actually called
    2, I'm just a bit odd
    3, I named it after our friend and guide, a bit.....oh thats 3 innit?

    History
    Very little I can find but this little bit came from the font of all knowledge...Wiki

    The foundation stone was laid on 18 May 1870It was built to the designs of Frederick Webster Ordish and John Charles Traylen of Mountsorrel granite, banded and interlaid with Derbyshire red grit stone, covered with Swithland grey green slating. Stone from Box and the Forest of Dean was used in the quatrefoils of the clerestory, and the side and end windows. The windows were fitted with mosaic glass by Evans of Birmingham.

    It was consecrated on 1 November 1871.


    The church was declared redundant in 2003 and the parish moved to a modern worship centre.


    Place has now been sealed

    So down in deepest, darkest darnsarfshire I went, I being well me, obvs, to meet a raven haired umbexer and friend named Drummergirl who was to be my guide for the morning.

    After battling our way valiantly through thick jungle we finally reached the entrance and made good our infill

    Stunning. I don't normally like religious stuff, must be the photos.
