I like abandoned buildings because they show the persistence of nature. Humans build out of arrogance, grand building to show their greatness. Nature just waits. When they fall nature just continues on indifferent. Like the race of the tortoise and the hare.
This old church standing on the plain of Kargapol, Russia, is open to wind and weather, and the wasteland spreads around for many kilometres. The church is dated 1655, being one of the oldest architectural monuments of the Arkhangelsk region. Right now we are going to have a closer look at it and visit the neighbouring village, Saunino, where one more equally old church complex is situated.
abandoned Agecroft cemetery and crematorium is the most recent of its’ kind in the Salford/ Manchester district. Built in 1903, it has to date, nearly 54,000 internments and since it opened in 1957 – almost 60,000 cremation services. But lurking near the main entrances – almost hidden from view with all its’ overgrowth is the Mortuary Chapel.
