Forgotten Church

As a reminder, to ensure irreversible damage to a building, don't care about roofs. After a few years, moisture has corroded all and you can easily declare a building unsafe.
Add a stability problem, declare the building has no value (like those who say it) and you can destroy it without anyone (almost) can be touched.
Finally, to feel good, keep the bell tower. At least, nobody would claim you are a heritage killer.

The tactics used at Lost Church seems to repeat itself for the church seen today.
Completely neglected for more than twenty years after rupture of the vault, nothing has been done to save the little village church.
Visit before demolition.

Let's start with where I don’t go any further : the bell tower.
Only this will be retained.

The church has its roots in the Middle Ages but the major part of the building dates from the late 19th century.

Four confessionals are present. They seem to have been away from the walls so they are not affected by moisture.

Besides the absence of maintenance, the church also undergo a stability problem.
The transept, where a part of the brick vault was left on the ground.
