I have absolutely no history on this place...oh wait it's old ....and broken...that's it!

Explore

It was good to meet up and explore again and even the very early start couldn't dampen our spirits, so Porky Pig and myself set off for enemy territory with a pocket full of locations and an inch of snow on the car.
This little church was our second good one out of 4 places and I was little underwhelmed at first but entry was ridiculously easy (even for me) if a little public and the chap stood right opposite in his doorway watching us was clearly impressed at our brazen cheek.

Once inside it got a little better but thats more than can be said for the weetabix floors in places and I was glad I had excercised every day during lockdown and was now much lighter than 12 months ago.

The place did have some nice features if you looked hard enough so I did take a few pics.

Thanks for looking

5.5/10 from me on this one

Without knowing where the Church is, many Ukrainians arrived here after 1945 as refugees. They would have bought a redundant chapel and changed the interior. There is one in Cheetham Hill, Manchester. Well Used.

just checked an online history of the Ukrainians in Bradford, they appear to have bought redundant 19th century Anglican Churches. EXACTLY where is it ?

You want me to put the exact location on open chat sir?
That is not going to happen, even in my posts I go to great lengths to not give away locations.
Maybe try the pm approach.

I can probably give you a lot more information on the chapel
