SJ2946 : St. John's Parish Church, Rhosllanerchrugog

taken 9 years ago, near to Rhosllanerchrugog, Wrexham/Wrecsam, Great Britain

St. John's Parish Church, Rhosllanerchrugog
St. John's Parish Church, Rhosllanerchrugog
This was consecrated in 1853 and closed in 2004 due to lack of funding for roof repairs. The building (which is grade II listed) still appears to be in good condition.
Despite being relatively new and having excellent stone work, it has an ancient and haunting feel about it - possibly due to the Romanesque revival / Norman style of architecture and the overgrowths.
It is located next to the main cemetery (which is not accessible from here) and there are also gravestones in the church grounds which I found to be unique. Several of them are in purple slate.
I liked this place.
