    As with lots of Euro places there have been lots of pics of this place around social media recently and had to have a look myself. Photos really don't do this place justice, the architecture and light inside is just stunning.. one of the most interesting buildings Ive ever visited.

    No idea why it got the daft code name of ET chapel, surprised it never got the name Star Trek chapel with the shapes inside...

    The History
    Been really tricky to get mush history on this place and the locals didn't speak much English so hard to get any real info locally either, all I have found is this extract from a small website.

    In total, in fact, 381 communes declared disaster by fighting and bombing in WW1. As in most villages of eastern Somme therefore, the church of Estrées-Deniecourt must be raised. This was done ten years after the conflict ended. With the separation of the Church of law and the state passed December 9, 1905, a diocesan cooperative reconstruction is founded in December 1921. His work is immense. In 1930, 211 monuments were rebuilt, fifty other almost-completed. Since the collection of funds, the choice of architect, validate plans and project supervision work, this voluntary organization controls all stages of the re-elevation of the cult buildings
