    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.

    It's good to see that this building is to come back into use after so long stood derelict.

    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!

    No! - I think the Council are handing it over for £1 after spending two hundred and fifty grand on it.
