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


    1. The History
    Searched high and low for info on this one and could 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
    Don’t normally do revisits or do them and report them so soon after my initial visit. Me and a non-forum explorer mate were looking at a place nearby and he said he hadn’t been here and fancied it, so we popped over. The weather was much worse than last time and the light not so good. Hence, I took a different approach to last time. Didn’t bother to get my SLR and tripod out and just snapped away on my phone. Was so pleased with how the phone pictures came out I thought I’d put up another set of photos of this little gem.

    There’s clearly been a few people looking round here since I came last as witnessed by one of the car’s boots being left open. The old cars really do make this place but the chapel, although packed full of automobile paraphernalia, is also very nice.
