What a fabulous building!

Fine image, too, Squire.
Chris: I am obliged to you ole thing. A lot of these tin things appeared in the nineteenth century and later when they couldn't afford the dosh to erect yet another stone church. This one happily survives, but as, I think, a house, and I can see it - far away - from the room in which I am sitting now

Good that it has been saved, but it could do with a bit more care than this, Chris
Chris: It probably wouldn't cost a fortune to repair it fully Lisl. I wonder if it has been listed?
It must be noisy inside when it rains. Where is this located?
Chris: Across the valley from where I live Larry, in a place called Bailbrook

Quite different from the Tabernacles loved by the Mormons in the US. I wonder what it like to be inside it in a hail storm?
Chris: Very NOISY I expect!

This is very interesting, it reminds me of the Nissen huts after the war.
Chris: I can see what you mean Philine but this type of church pre-dates those temporary dwellings
You may recall there is one preserved at Avoncroft
Chris: Yes indeed there is
I've been somewhere that I can't recall over recent years and came across a tin church, that one didn't have a tower like this though.
Chris: There are a number left but having a tower is pretty rare
I have come across these in Cumbria and Scotland,as you say they were cheap to build. Apparently, too hot in summer, too cold in winter. The ones I've seen were much smaller than this.
Chris: This must be the de-lux version Frank,,
A lovely mosh mash ...
Chris: I assume this is some sort of compliment..
I really like the look of rusted tin! This is great!
I have seen photos of these in Russia, Lithuania, etc.
