They say today is Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year. If you believe in that kinda thing. So cheer up dear reader, the days are getting longer and you woke up so it can't be all bad.
It still amazes me to see abandoned places, I am really not sure why I am fascinated with them but I am and I will drive for hours, pull over unexpectedly (safely), make u-turns (safely!) and take photos from as many angles as possible. Winter is not my favourite time to explore, snow makes it hard to pull over wherever I want and sometimes the seemingly endless white landscape doesn't make the most interesting photo....in my opinion of course. I have seen stunning winter photos but I can't take one for the life of me. Plus getting myself or my car stuck would not be fun. I stepped off the roadside on my latest excursion and got snow over the tops of my boots....you never know what is under the snow or how deep it is.

There was too much snow to look around the grounds (the gate was almost totally obscured by snow) but someone is looking after this old place as the covers on the windows and doors are recent. An internet search shows a photo of the churches in January 2014 and the windows and doors are not covered.
"The old order changeth, yielding place to new" Tennyson. That about sums it up.
