Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and still in good condition. The church spire was used as an Intersected Station too.

Revisit. FB on cafe added to the front of a former church. This FB has obviously been removed from the church and carefully reinstated on the newer stone facade of the coffee shop.

Chance find. Suspect this has been relocated from original church building behind. The stone frontage housing the FB appears to have been added in recent years.
