This is the derelict church i visited on my own. Built by Colonel Edward Akroyd to serve his model village of Akroydon at Boothtown, All Soul's Church is in a corner of Akroyd Park facing Haley Mills. Considered one of the country's finest Victorian Gothic churches, the architect was George Gilbert Scott, famous in his day for London's Albert Memorial, St Pancras Station Hotel and other buildings. It includes much sculpture, metalwork, stained glass and painting by leading artists and artisans of the day.
Building started in 1856 and the church was consecrated in 1859. The church was vast, with a tower and spire of cathedral proportions (236 ft, 72 m), and far beyond the resources of a small congregation. In the late 1970s the roof and spire were in disrepair and the church was closed for service in 1978. Some repairs were undertaken and in 1988, the church's protection and maintenance was taken over by the Redundant Churches Fund (now The Churches Conservation Trust). If you look in the middle of the aisle there is some strange floating orbs, i only noticed this after i got home...ooooooooooooo..scary lol

Excellent interior shot and processing with interesting pre-narrative.
I hope the floating orbs are some kind of reflected light.

Wow! Did you have a spring clean whilst you were there? It looks spotless for a derelict building...bar the coke bottle left in the pew which adds to it's mystery...but that doesn't detract from the central focus...the Spirits, waiting to mix an unhealthly cocktail! Wink Spectacular capture and processing as always, superb, so much so...here's my seal of approval for today! Smile
