Shade church

Sadly, this building resides on top of a culverted river, which during a storm in February partially collapsed.

The threat of further collapse and the flood hazard this would create has necessitated the demolition of the church.

The building was very tastefully converted into residential use and was a paragon of heritage renewal which makes this even more of a pity.
