floorboards

A couple more images taken from Berners Roding Church as it slowly crumbles into the ground.

The images in this short series are all HDR images produced using Photomatix and have also all had additional processing using On One’s Photo Tools in Photoshop.

You can see in the image above the sunlight breaking through the back wall as well as the crumbling wall and wrecked floorboards.

To the Field Day! That look such an optimistic sign in such a run down place.

Berners Roding Church To The Field Day


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.
