    Default Methodist Chapel, South Anston, S.Yorks, January 2019


    1. The History
    Searched high and low for info on this one and couldn't find anything. All I know is that it was a former Methodist Church which was then sold off and bought by a man who was a car enthusiast and he used the chapel as his workshop and kept his cars and tractors in the grounds. It appears he passed away and the place has just been left. The church has holes in the roof and its days are surely numbered while the assorted vehicles gently rust away.

    2. The Explore
    Nice little mooch this one. Fairly easy in and bar not getting spotted from the road or the two properties either side a relaxed explore. The church is basically one big room crammed full of car paraphernalia and a small off-shot room. Outside in the grounds are four cars, two vintage tractors and a digger. The place had a bit of atmosphere to it and the red bordered windows in the church and the vintage cars really photogenic.

    3. The Pictures

    The chapel first:
