Part of the Sell Out Cat Crew (SOCC) outing me and Banned batz visted a church

First day of visiting derelict sites of the year, having been here in 2012 and since upgrading camera several times and improving my photography a hell of a lot I thought it was time to see how the church was doing after it's on/off access. Answer is not a lot has happened.

The church was consecrated on Monday, the 23rd of January, 1865. Representatives of the local Wesleyan, Baptist and Independent churches were present at the service.The total build cost of the church, nearby school and vicarage was £8,000.

The church, 120 ft. long and 53 ft. wide was built in the Early Pointed Gothic style from stone with pillars of polished red granite. Seating accommodation was provided for 1,000 people. The tower, which stands on the north side of the chancel, is surmounted by a spire 150 ft. in height. A small transept was built on the south side of the church. It was used originally as a pew for the Holt family but later the font was transferred to this chapel from its former position in the chancel. The church contains a baptistry for the immersion of adults. It is sunk in the chancel floor and is covered by an ornamental grating.

The Church held it’s final service in October 2007 and has since had repairs to the roof in the north aisle to prevent collapse.
