    Such a shame to see it like this,I can remember when it was still in use,in the early 70's! Hopefully, any plans for it's future will soon be realised?

    I hope so, even if they only retain the frontage. The cemetary could be turned into a quite park for students to study in.

    It's for weather protection. I have some pix of the inside,but I can't find them right now. There isn't much to see though,even the floor has gone.

    That's great news! I remember the church when it was still in use,in the early 70's,and have watched it's gradual deterioration,since!
