Now that is a surprise but I suppose there is not the congregation to sustain it.
....peter:): the chapel was built in a sawmill town when it was booming in the late 1800's by a lumber baron Alan... now there are only about 160 people living there now....petersmile
I hope it is rescued before it is too late
....peter:): it may get sold to someone who would want to build in into a cabinet maker some day Bill....petersmile
Nice composition Peter... smile
....peter:): thank you Sudipto ....petersmile
I guess, being made of wood, it could just stand there and slowly rot away.
....peter:): it would rot away unless somebody buys it to turn it into some kind of workshop Brian....petersmile
We have had this problem too.
....peter:): times have changed Mary... but there are only about 160 people living in this town that used to have a sawmill....petersmile
Once a really lovely chapel.... a little sad
....peter:): very sad Elizabeth... there are only about 160 people living in what was once a booming sawmill town....petersmile

Oh, I cannot believe - such a beautiful, freshly painted church is abandoned? I hope there will be an institution or persons to sustain it.
On a small spare patch of ground between a network of roads there is a church just like this in my locality. It is quite incongruous and out of place in its surroundings but it is not abandoned it is very much in use!
