Tin tabernacles: White Grit

Today's Guardian had a third editorial In Praise of... Tin Tabernacles:
No one knows how many such manufactured places of worship still exist, though the number is diminishing. Some were at best rudimentary; too many have grown rusty, shabby, even offensively derelict. Yet the best have an aura and grace you would hardly expect from the work of jobbing construction companies like Dixons of Liverpool, or Humphries of Croydon.
Which gives me an excuse for posting another photograph of the church at White Grit.
