My Sunday Photo: a new life for an old church

A few weeks ago we went to one of my favourite places, Beamish, a living museum that we have visited every few years since I was little.  Each time, there is something new to explore, which is one of the things I love about it.

This time it was a small church that had I had passed time and again during my childhood as it was literally 10 minutes down the road, but which had closed due to lack of attendance.

Beamish saved it, moving it brick by brick to it’s new home at the museum.  It was actually moved in 2015, but we haven’t been since it was reopened.  It’s a lovely little church, one I hadn’t been in despite how close it used to be to me.  You can see a story of how it was moved here.

This photo shows it in it’s new setting, with a bit of tweaking using my photo-editing software to make it look old-worldly (not actually sure if that is a word but went with it anyway!)….

  1. I think that’s a great word, and if it isn’t, it should be! You are lucky to live close to such a wonderful place. We have a similar place, St Fagans National Museum of History, they save old buildings and move them to their site too #MySundayPhoto
