Church (with bonus buzzard and sheep)

Another catch-up

I used up our local parish church (Church of Scotland) for Door as I was fascinated that it had a white UPVC door.

That was our "new" church which was built in 1840.

The parish is actually quite big and the previous church was about 5 miles away at Kilchrist.

That church was built in the late 1400's / early 1500's. It could hold about 200 people and when the congregation was larger the service was held outdoors. People had to walk miles to services.

This is what is left of the church:

The burial ground there was used for at least another 100 years after the church was abandoned.

And I looked to the left of the picture and saw this buzzard:

Church plus buzzard

I couldn't turn there so went on a bit to find a turning place, and on coming back I found a sheep had wandered through a vanished doorway - so this is a quick picture from the middle of the road via the open passenger door window:
