Poland Ko?ció? w Alt Jäschwitz, Poland (visted Oct-2012) 2013

Recommended Posts

Ok, sometimes you pass a location that may not completely deserve a report on it's own, but well, since you're there, you decide to quickly take some snaps.

Located only a few hundred meters from "The Chapel" in a tiny village with only 400 people we found this place by accident.

A bit of history;

In 1744 a wooden church was build for the evangelic community of Alt Jäschwitz. For some reason, in 1842 the wooden church was replaced by a new concrete church and was converted into a Lutheran church. They finished building the new church in 1844.

In 1945, after the war, the church was abandoned simply because the Polish people that moved back into this area were catholic and didn't want to pray in a German church.

Nowadays it's in a state beyond repair, but some tiny details inside still give you the impression that it once must have been a nice place.

It's on the list of monuments in Poland, but it's unlikely it will ever get restored to it's former glory.

Below two pictures taken in 1917 & 1919, showing the church and it's former beauty;

Thanks guys!

Yeah, it's very unfortunate, all those evangelic churches in this region. There are a couple more around, some in better shape, others in worse conditions.. One thing they all have in common, it's highly unlikely they will ever get restored... :cry: Simply a money issue..

      Traveling through eastern Poland together we saw an abandoned house near the road. quick decision - we are entering. From the outside, the house did not offer much. The entrance was easy, only to our misfortune the house was empty, there was not much equipment in it, practically bare walls. Taking advantage of the fact that we are inside, we decided to go down to the cellars and garage, which we saw from the road. While walking around the house from the other side, we saw an open window leading to the garage. Our surprise was huge, it was difficult to believe that Jaguar was there! Quick entry inside and here is. Beautiful Jaguar 420, and most importantly, it is in quite good condition, with most details and elements. Unfortunately, the engine was gently stolen, but the unit with a capacity of 4.2 liters was still beautiful. It once produced a dizzying 245 km, which allowed the 1.7 tonne vehicle to accelerate to nearly 200km / h. Then we went to the interior of this classic of the 60s. The door was closed, but the mechanism of the lock still worked, which allowed us to sit on the seats of this luxury vehicle. Each indicator, meter, and clock was in perfect condition, the steering wheel caused great resistance, but this is probably because the Jaguar tires have lost most of the air over the years. Every button, the switch went like it was completely new. The car was exceptionally comfortable and very well equipped. With time, it has come to us that after the photos and memories of this Jaguar will not be much, because the owner forgot about him, and he is waiting alone for him in the garage.

      We popped in here over the summer for the first time, quite liked it here, nice and peaceful...until I heard someone outside with their lad, peeped out the access hole to see none other that our own Silverainbow
      Was a busy day, as a poor badger had found his way in, but sadly not his way out. This place was to be his last explore.. So here is part of one of many Napoleonic War defences along this stretch of coastline, all with fascinating histories including WWI&II. Some info can be found here
      Anyway, got a few pics but forgot to snap Mr Badger! He did smell a bit fresh so didn't want to hang around him too long..
