I thought that this was going to be easy. All the houses built here in the last 40 years have UPVC doors but I was sure that I would be able to find an old croft house or something traditional. Well I couldn't without being intrusive and going up people's drives.

Yesterday I thought that the door of the village Church of Scotland church would be a good idea, as it dates from 1840. But I was wrong. The entrance was actually redone in 1930 and the door replaced somewhat later with a UPVC door! I don't think I've ever noticed one on a church before.

This is the church itself. I can't work out where the original doorway, replaced in 1930, would have been.

Apparently the church, when built, could hold 600 people. I find this difficult to believe. I know it had a gallery, which was removed in the 1930's refurbishments, but it still looks a lot smaller than that to me.
