For ruined churches of all denominations plus any churches/chapels which have been abandoned or boarded up.

Group Description

The group for church and chapel ruins and this can include ruined abbeys, priories, monasteries and friaries. In the case of ruined monastic buildings try to feature the church part of the site as much as you can but rest assured admin interpretation on this issue will be quite liberal. If only the gatehouse survived then that is acceptable!

Derelict churches which still have a roof in place may also be treated as 'ruined' for the purposes of this group. A vandalised church [it happens] which is still in regular use probably does not qualify but the admin will take those on a case-by-case basis. Let's hope we do not see too many!

Buildings must be from all branches of the Christian tradtition [Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Coptic, etc] but can include buildings which have changed from churches to mosques or from mosques to churches.

No Graeco/Roman temples, Egyptology or prehistoric ruins unless the caption clearly states the building was used as a church during the Christian era.

If in doubt send Flickr mail to group admin for advice and assistance.
