Berners Roding Church Looking In

If you’ve been following this blog you will now know that I enjoy photographing Churches and derelict buildings…so what could be better than to find a derelict Church!

Berners Roding Church is certainly in a poor state. Rumour has it that it may be sold for residential use, though the graveyard has certainly been used relatively recently and some of the graves do appear to be tended. Inside you can see sunlight streaming in through the large cracks down the walls, the floor is exposed to the boards which are badly damaged. All that said, it does seem to be remarkably watertight!

So, a brief series of pictures from Berners Roding commences with a view through a broken window into the church:

And here we have a view of the chancel and Altar looking down the Church, the damage to the floor very clearly shown.
