The Old Chapel, Upminster

Having just typed about my baptism I decided to Google - and thought I would share these very sad photos. 

They have brought back the memories - but are sad to see that the money has never been raised.  The trouble is that there is a natural spring under the building, so repair is evry expensive. It was originally built in 1800, with a new front being added in 1847

Anyway - here are the remains -


The baptistry is in the floor in front of the pulpit -



The upper gallery was already closed as dangerous when we were members there -
