Last time I was able to walk around this old church - this time the gates were locked and I had to be content with poking the rangefinder through them:

The last service here was held in 1855, so this building provided for the community for almost 150 years. Amazingly, it's been derelict now for slightly longer. I reckon it'll be around for a few years yet - a wonderful testament to the knowledge and skills of those early 18th Century stonemasons from this part of the world. I'm sure that many of them would have made their way to North America during the great migration of the Ulster-Scots during the18th Century and their skills would have no doubt been in great demand when setting up their new communities in Virginia, Pennsylvania, New England and beyond.
