    This church has been derelict for quite a while now, since 1999, and since exploring I've been very keen to see the inside of it. I've checked access more times than I can remember. There is a good reason for this; I've heard stories from family members for years that there used to be a plaque inside commemorating all the fallen soldiers of the 6th Battalion, Gloucestershire Regiment, of which my Great Great Uncle's name is on there (he died in the Italian campaign and is buried over there). No now knew what happened to it, wether it was still in there or not, etc. So, whenever I'm near I always have a look to see if anything has changed which recently came up trumps.

    As expected there wasn't any power which was a shame as it made lighting some of the plaques very tricky. The whole church is adorned with plaques everywhere.

    The memorial to the 6th Battalion, Gloucestershire Regiment which I was very happy to find, as well as seeing my Great Great Grandfathers name on:

    Good to see that you finally got to the bottom of the long running family rumor as well :thumb

    Hmm I like the look of this place - not often you come across a disused church with access available. Nice pictures too! :)
