Something a bit different this week. Normally I post a church or cemetery I have visited but this week it's a few churches & Chapels that I have seen while I have been out. I don't tend to get a chance to look round them as they generally tend to be locked and are so small there is very little to see inside.
I'll start with this Methodist Church in Burford which is just round the corner from the place I visited last week. It's a Grade II listed building and when I passed it to get a photo I had not clue as to what it was. It was only after I started looking on GE I noticed the board you can see on the right in the photo and saw the word church on it.
If you follow my Daily Photo blog you will have seen the next two before
This building is along New Inn Hall Street in Oxford, does not look so much different than a lot of other buildings
Till you read the plaque on the wall. Not sure what the place is used for now as there is a Methodist church further down the street on the opposite side.
Carfax Tower in Oxford but did you now it was part of the of the Church called St Martin, tis was attached to it and would have been the bell tower on the west end. I would have been stood in the nave had it still been here. The church was rebuilt in 1820 and removed in 1896. Part of the churchyard still exists off to the right with a couple of graves in it.
St Giles Church in Oxford, not had a chance to go in there yet but I will
My best friend used to live next door and his garden went past the right hand side and as kids we were always poking our heads above the window sill to look at the service going on only to get shooed away for making faces
This wonderful old building is off Northbrook street in Newbury and was once the Congregationalist School
The doors are in pairs which I'm sure was to do with one for boys the other girls, normally it is carved over the entrance
There is also a church beside it
Which is quite new
and this is the church they use now. I suspect the old church was demolished
You can find may old head stones
I suspect the graves have been lost or moved leaving only the headstones
Slogans round the entrance and on the corner stones.
Have a great Sunday
