    Default Galloway Church


    A small derelict church discovered by chance, I'm not sure of much history of the building. I am guessing it fell out of use in the last 15 - 20 years. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

    Nice one.
    I think churches which become redundant like that soon become holiday lets of all things! I've seen quite a few do that round this way.

    Seeing the grave stones - reminded me of a certain grave yard (church elsewhere) near the borders region. Several of the grave stones are being supported by human bones. Yes - leg bones being used as 'shims' to keep the stones up. I'm sure there's something illegal about that but hey it works!
    Full of meaty goodness.
