Hi SR
That's a really interesting looking church. Love that tower. The decoration on it looks quite unusual. Nice pics too.
Cheers for that
Foxy :)

Looks good, it's got to be quite old. If you find something please post it!:)

I do like this, that tower looks great. agree with foxy on that. :)

What was all the scaffolding there for? was it to hold up the walls? or do you think they'll be redeveloping it (probably into more upmarket apartments, grrr!!)

Very nice pics, do like this. thank you for sharing. and looking forward to finding out more.

thanks again.

:) Sal

Very nice pictures indeed me thinks -in particular the one looking up the tower.
Looks like there's some hope of it being restored, with all the temporary supports.
