    Hey there, firgured it was time to conduct my first urbex and check out the remains of this church, but first a brief run down of the site

    St.Mary's was one of the oldest in my town of Morley (Leeds), records show that this was infact mentioned in the domesday book

    since i can remember it has never been used in my lifetime, nor had i seen it be used and within the past year contractors had plans for it to be converted into apartments with an on site restaurant. campaigns were held to save its beauty as it was a much beloved church being a part of living history.

    Early hours on a saturday morning around 2am it "mysteriously" catches fire after standing there hundreds of years, coincidence? who knows

    This is what remained after the fire

    Sorry for the slight blur of the pictures, i only have a digital camera, and i was using it one handed due to holding my fellow photgraphers tri-pod at the same time
