France Eglise D'Estrees-Deniecourt (ET Chapel) April 2016

Recommended Posts

The Explore
As with lots of Euro places there have been lots of pics of this place around social media recently and had to have a look myself. Photos really don't do this place justice, the architecture and light inside is just stunning.. one of the most interesting buildings Ive ever visited.

No idea why it got the code name of ET chapel, surprised it never got the name Star Trek chapel with the shapes inside...

 

The History
Been really tricky to get mush history on this place and the locals didn't speak much English so hard to get any real info locally either, all I have found is this extract from a small website.

In total, in fact, 381 communes declared disaster by fighting and bombing in WWI. As in most villages of eastern Somme therefore, the church of Estrées-Deniecourt must be raised. This was done ten years after the conflict ended. With the separation of the Church of law and the state passed December 9, 1905, a diocesan cooperative reconstruction is founded in December 1921. His work is immense. In 1930, 211 monuments were rebuilt, fifty other almost-completed. Since the collection of funds, the choice of architect, validate plans and project supervision work, this voluntary organization controls all stages of the re-elevation of the cult buildings

      Was  reminded that I didn't posted anything yet so, here's a post of a recent visit to this mine. This one is not the safest one :-) . Some parts are  already collapsed.
      There are several levels but the lower did we skip. Heard that the air quality is not the best there and we didn't bring the rope ladder .
      Was nice  to explore. Hope you enjoy looking at this.
