The Red Church

We still had some time left on the way home on our tour, and we decided to pay a visit tothe "Red Church", mostly because it was in the right direction and didn't mean too much of a detour.
We quickly found the location, but it didn't look too accessible at first glance - but a first glance is often deceptive, so of course, we decided to take a closer look.
We parked the car in a side road and walked a couple of hundred meters until we got to the church.
Shortly before we got out of the car, it started raining. Not too much, but enough to be a little annoying.
We got to the fence that shielded the church from the rest of the world. It was right at the street, so it really wasn't the first choice as an access route, and we went on to look for another way in.
There was no chance. The other sides of the church were lined by a high wall and houses that didn't allow access either.
We must have looked for about half an hour when we got back to the front of the church and were standing at the iron gate - that rusty barrier keeping us from fulfilling our urbex destiny.
At on epoint, I got really fed up with it. I didn't care about the cars going by or the neighbours watching, and I gracefully climbed over the fence. Well, not really grace had nothing to do with it after all. But the others followed and we at least were on the premises. Only thing left to do was to get in. Easier said then done, the only way into the building was a really small window at the side of the building. I'm not really tall, but it wasn't easy getting in. Somehow we all managed, though, and we were all amazed by the beauty of this church that has been abandoned for more than sixty years.

There isn't much left, but it was well worth the effort. And it was Sunday after all - what better day to go to church ;)
We left after about three quarters of an hour to drive home, and complete our tour with a couple of shots at home.
