That is a spiffing church that you've built, Alec.  I intend to build one soon.  If it ends up half as good as yours I'll be delighted.

I agree completely that the war memorial and garden will be an ideal use of the space beside the church.

All the very best.

I don't think the occupants of the cemetery would be impressed with the loud rumblings a few feet underneath them  :D   

I'd be worried about the church foundations as it is - I presume it doesn't have a crypt?


I have the same problem!

John,

Its a Metcalfe church and as I remember I found it one of their very easiest models to build. I think one of these on your layout would look just the bizzo! Poppingham St.Marks maybe?

Of course it has a crypt Nick! I leave no stone unturned in my endeavours to achieve modelling perfection  :)

It would probably help settle them into their new home, although it might scare the local populace if they were to moan about the loud rumblings! :uneasy:

Here's my version of the Metcalfe church I started a couple of weeks ago (with the rather obvious transition between "church" wall and dry stone wall, not as neat as Alec's wall!). I also notice I need to straighten the cross on the top of the lych gate. More weathering and bedding in to be done, and I still intend to "populate" the churchyard with assorted tombs and tombstones.

Steve,

it looks great. I think it blends so well with your back scene. Excellent!

Many thanks, Alec.  It is a substantial structure and I assumed it might be tricky to build, so I was leaving it until I had some more experience with Metcalfe kits.  Following your kind and helpful comments it has now moved up the list!

Best wishes.

John
