    Default Early Bird


    I do like a good church, and this place did not disappoint, the craftmanship in the place was worth the early start alone



    Built in 1878 and closed in 1999
    The building has been bought by developers, who in May 2012 submitted a planning application to build 12 apartments on the site, but this was later rejected.
    Another application was lodged in December 2015, this time for eight apartments, but it was later withdrawn in 2016.



    Access was a little more public than I would have liked because I'm a coward but apart from one lady waiting at the bus stop opposite eveybody else was asleep so after a short wait for the bus I was in.


    This place was beautiful in my opinion and thankfully I seem to have just beaten the tour bus and the torch bearers and was only slightly spoiled by the human poo upstairs, if you are reading this I hope you are suitably ashamed,
    tut tut.


    Pics
























    A lovely, peaceful solo explore for the first real one of the year.
    Its fair to say I loved this place and now wished I'd spent longer in here than I did.
    I really do hope this doesn't get trashed by the goon tubers

    8.5/10 from me
