Hammerbeam View

Hammerbeam View, originally uploaded by fotofacade.

If you are ever lucky enough to visit the church - look up from this angle at the hammerbeam roof - it is spectacular.

Saint Edmund's, Falinge near Rochdale - is a real tour-de-force. Built in the 1870's for £28,000 (when a good church cost £4000). It is a Masonic Church and Pevsner says that it has symbolism to rival the Da Vinci Code Rosslyn Chapel. I am photographing the interior because it is due to close this month.
