    The History

    The architect employed by Mr. Maden Holt was E. Wyndham Tarn of London. The church, 120 ft. long and 53 ft. wide was built in the Early Pointed Gothic style from stone quarried on Mr. Holt's estate with pillars of polished red granite. Seating accommodation was provided for 1,000 people. The tower, which stands on the north side of the chancel, is surmounted by a spire 150 ft. in height. A small transept was built on the south side of the church. It was used originally as a pew for the Holt family but later the font was transferred to this chapel from its former position in the chancel. The church contains a baptistry for the immersion of adults. It is sunk in the chancel floor and is covered by an ornamental grating.



    The Explore


    The access to this place was rather, unorthodox but was fun to watch @Lancashire lad & @godgp78 acting like children when we did get in. Spent a couple hours in here and got a few good snaps of the buildings interior be careful of the homeless angry man outside the main doors..

    Why doesn't the homeless guy move into the church rather than living in the doorway?? :)

    He has as much right to be there as you so why he complains is a little hypocritical.
