  1. What an amazing blog! I am really glad I stumbled on this excellent resource and thanks for documenting important architectural history. After looking at this, I have developed an interest in modern churches. The final one in Stalybridge (don’t want to click back in case the message is deleted) is wonderful and it is a tradgedy it is abandoned. You should make some coffee table books. I’d buy.
