UK Biscuit Church - Lincolnshire - May 2015

Recommended Posts

This little church has sat lonely for a few years, money dried up and it has basically been left to decay, yippeee. Well not for them but yes for me. I loved this little place, lots of atmosphere too. Haven't actually got any history so I am basically making it up as I am going along and the more I type the more interesting it looks :mrgreen:

There were a few there that day like us trying to get in but only we managed it because we rock! We waited ..... and waited......and waited.... pretending to take pics of trees, gravestones and his car which was nicely parked up in a meadow.

There were dogs, I fucking hate dogs. Barking as soon as we got out of the car, every time they saw any of us they barked.

So basically after pretending to be avid nature photographers we made our entry, obviously if you've read any of my other posts explores are never uneventful haha. This explore was no exception. Got in quickly allthough clambering through something that I really shouldn't have been able to get my body through was slightly uncomfortable, sealed entry so we could stay undetected and off we went to start snapping. It is only a small church but has lots of character. I loved everything about it, especially the stained glass. I did at one point stand up on the pulpit and read an extract to HT who did actually stop and listen for a few seconds before pissing himself laughing because I had put on my posh voice. It was all going allright until someone tried the door handle,we just looked at each other and thought oh fuck, luckily we were inbetween the pulpit and the organ, bit of a tight squeeze, funny as fuck trying not to make any noise. The windows were low too so trying to stay hidden was hard. Thankfully they buggered off, whoever it was and left us to it. It was an amazing little place with a hell of a lot of prettiness.

Anyway, pics.

Pretty little thing

I literally have about 50 photos of flowers and shit from the graveyard while we were waiting for the dogs to feck off and the nosey humans to go away too. :D

Glad we waited though, was a cracking little place, even the mild heart attack whilst hiding inside for whoever that was to bugger off.

Great shots you got too, those windows were a little gem. Like shot 3 too :D:D:D

      Only a few quick shots, taken without a tripod.
      I don't know when the chapel (called "Capel Zinc") was built, it was a subsidiary tabernacle for the now Holy Trinity Church in Corris.
      Chairs has been removed and apparently the property is now used by a flower grower.
      Visited with @The_Raw and @Miss.Anthrope.

      Splored With Lara,Trog and peaches






      In the back area of the stage Lara found some costumes and the silliness began.
      Beds began to roll up and down the corridors .
       

       
      Better not to ask

      I nearly ran straight into secca.
      At first i thought it was another fool dressed up but as Sindbad
      Then realized he was a Sihk Secca lol

      This fella was either as deaf as a post or turned a blind eye & I wasnt fussed with either.
      As was more to see and we put a bit of distance between us and the now named Turbanator.








      Cheers for looking in

      History 
       
      The engineering company J.E. Billups of Cardiff who also constructed Mireystock Bridge and the masonry work on the Lydbrook viaduct commenced construction of the tunnel in 1872 using forest stone. The tunnel is 221 metres in length and took 2 years to construct. The tunnel allowed the connection of the Severn and Wye Valley railway running from Lydney with the Ross and Monmouth network at Lydbrook. The first mineral train passed through the tunnel on 16 August 1874. Passenger services commenced in September 1875 pulled by the engine Robin Hood.
       
      The history of this section of line is not without incident - a railway ganger was killed in the tunnel by a train in 1893 and a locomotive was derailed by a fallen block of stone in the cutting at the northern entrance in 1898.
      The line officially closed to passenger trains in July 1929 but goods trains continued to use the line until the closure of Arthur & Edward Colliery at Waterloo in 1959 and Cannop Colliery in 1960. Lifting of the track was completed in 1962. The tunnel and cutting were buried with spoil in the early 1970's.
       
      Thanks to the vision and enthusiasm of a group of local Forest railway enthusiasts assisted by Forest Enterprise the top of the northern portal of the tunnel (with its unusual elliptical shape) which has lain buried for 30 years has now been exposed. 
      As of 2018 the tunnel now still lays abandoned with no sign of the cycle track and the £50,000 funding seemingly gone to waste.
