A devastating fire in 1955 destroyed all but this belltower of St George The Martyr Church (1845). The parish hall became the place of worship and with this tower standing as a memorial, a cloister with church offices, a fellowship hall and apartments was built which wrapped around a garden where the nave of the old church used to be.

  1. That’s such a great shot. I expect Rapunzel to stick her head out of a window!

  2. A fascinating dark tower and an unbelievably blue door, which seems so lovely in this sinister building. Great shot!

  3. Wow … what a story, along with a wonderful photo. I enjoyed the cobblestone bridge and the ducks too.

    Have a great week,

  4. A lovely blue door on this old bell tower. Too bad the rest is gone.

  5. Old and new, each with their own story! Great shot 😉

  6. That is a very striking structure. Amazing that it has been there such a long time.
