Visited with Ferox, this was our last explore of the day & a nice peaceful end to an ace day exploring. Knew we were getting close when we came across an overgrown graveyard, was worth going just for that, really like graveyards so it was pretty cool. A bit sad as well thinking about the owners of the overgrown graves, some of them looked like they might still be tended to but there were a lot that had been reclaimed by nature, was a bit of a surreal wander. Would be a really atmospheric night time explore i reckon. Cheers once again to Ferox, a sound chap & spot on to explore with.







History,

"Built in 1787, it served its local community for more than two centuries Loxley Chapel in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, was closed in 1993. It is a Grade II-listed church, once known as Loxley Methodist Church and Loxley United Reformed Church.

Shropshire resident Iain Kelly has relatives buried in the chapel’s graveyard, and said he was ‘shocked’ at its state after visiting there in 2010.

Mr Kelly said: ‘After a long search I was unable to identify the family graves and came away quite distressed at the total and utter neglect.

Writing on Sheffield Forum, he added: ‘My horror was increased on the discovery that the burial ground is still accepting new customers, as it were."





did go down here but wasn't a lot going on

















a nice dark photo to end with :-D

Sound thanks for the advice :) i don't explore with a tripod, know i should get one but it's just something else to carry and i like to travel light. To be honest i've always find lighting a bit hit & miss, could probably do with a more powerful torch as well.
