Sorry I am late posting about this one, I didn’t get the poster to put in the shop and have only just remembered.
The church I don’t attend is St Georges in Ramsgate, I certainly wouldn’t not go to any other church, it is a gem of a Regency church pretty much completely in tact.
One unusual feature is that it still has coffins in the vaults in the crypt, so here are the pictures.
I will enhance and publish some more pictures later, as you can imagine the light wasn’t ideal for photography.
Due to modern health and safety regulations, mostly relating to the asbestos used on the old central heating system, children are now not allowed in the crypt.
At one time this was their favourite part of the church, most especially the small coffins containing the bodies of dead children.

By way of explanation here to any adults who my stumble upon this post by mistake and not understand it, this is very much about children being very much aware that they are mortal and can die like the rest of us, but there is very little about to show them that they will get the same treatment as adults if they do. Proper coffin, buried with their relations and so on.
Here are the rest of the pictures as promised http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop710/id5.htm
All bit sad the business with the weeds growing from the cracks in the cliff façade that is.
My understanding of the situation at the moment and please correct me if I am wrong, is that the council having spent £1m of our council tax having this structure filled repaired and painted have now responded to criticism that it wasn’t done properly.
This criticism isn’t just based on the rather obvious pictures of the weeds but also on the fact that the council have already had to pay to have part of the repairs repaired.
Oh yes back to their response, apparently this was to get the firm that supervised the faulty repairs to inspect them, word is – not surprisingly really – that the inspection reveals nothing wrong with the repairs.
