The Yellow Pipe Church

The Yellow Pipe Church Visited with: Alex Burnell Visit date: August 2016 Please Note: Entry is always through an open access point and not by forcing our way in….. We are explorers, not vandals. History To keep this location safe from vandals and thieves all I will say is that the church opened it's doors in the late 1880's. My Visit For those who know me or read my reports you will know that I love churches and I was hoping this one would not disappoint. Although the church is not as ornate in design as some of the others I have been to the altars are by far the best I have seen[...]

We are explorers, not vandals. History I cannot find any history at this time. My Visit So what can i say about this location.... Well, I know that I was expecting a little more than I got! The whole place was stripped back to the bare bones or very badly decayed. Apart from a few old files and boxes the place was basically empty. The saving grace for me was the graffiti that adorned the walls in a ro[...]

We are explorers, not vandals. My Visit This was the second location of the day out of 3 successful explores and it is by far my favourite of the day. Even though this place is decayed to a level that is almost beyond repair it still holds the most character and charm out of the 3 locations. As you can probably tell I am so glad we got to see the beauty that is ‘The Church of [...]
