  1. The 1950's architecture is nowhere near as charming and warm looking as the old church. . . . . . just great that they didn't knock it down! I would probably spend more time in what is now the church hall which must have a long history. . . . . . . and hopefully central heating, haha!!!!!
    Have a good Sunday Bill - we're watching our Friday snow melt in the sunshine.

    1. The old church was built in 1828 which supprised me as it looks older. We are watching the rain clouds no doubt more rain on the way

  3. It does have a 1950's look about it. The older building looks as though it's been there forever.
