What a lovely old church, but now damp and showing signs of real decay. We were welcomed by the volunteer staff and enjoyed seeing the interior, but came away feeling sad.

We have visited many churches over the last few years in pursuit of our interest in stained glass, but I think I can safely say that we have never been made to feel so unwelcome as we were last week - in stark contrast to...More
