Jen and I went to have a look at this building, which is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, and the model railway show held within it last Sunday.
Have a look at Trust’s web site http://www.oldchristchurch.moonfruit.com/
Jen has a degree in building conservation and I am keen on model railways so there was something for both of us you might say. It is a Grade 2* Listed Building that has been brought back into full community use and had over 31,000 visitors in 2012.
Yes, I know, what’s an atheist doing going about a church you might ask? Well despite not having a religion I do like church architecture and this particular church, built of pink sandstone, is nice and well worth the time and effort of volunteers who keep it going.
As for the model railway show, it was excellent so here are a few photos:-
