I discovered it was built in 1880 as both a school and a church. It ceased being a school in the 1930's and the last service was held in 1959. It is such an incongruous setting, being in the middle of a wood. I cant wait to get back there in misty and wintry conditions.

The lighting was awfully challenging. Deep shade and full on sun next to each other. Luckily I have been doing a few online tutorials in recent months and HDR merging was one of them. After merging three raw files I then open the merge in Adobe Camera Raw. That has seen a major upgrade in recent weeks and the brush tool is amazing. Almost blown highlights....no problem..... just paint in some exposure correction to the affected areas.

The first and third shot in this post would not have made it if I had relied on a single exposure.

This is the first of the 3 raw captures processed with default silkypix adjustments. Just look at the blown highlights !

As others have noted, You've certainly done a great job with these images, Peter. A fascinating structure of unusual design and history. Is there any kind of preservation order on it as would be a great loss if it were allowed to fall into rack and ruin?

I like these Peter (as I do the whole set on flickr). Definitely the kind of place I'd love to spend some time in with a camera.

Very well processed and what a gem for subject material!

Masterful processing has produced images that absorb the viewer.

I cannot find any reference to it being "protected", but it sits in a conservation area so hopefully that offers it some security. There are two large steel poles supporting the highest wall. The other walls are all in reasonable condition. The Victorians were master craftsmen when it came to building.

It doesn't seem to be 'listed'. There's nothing to stop one from applying to Historic England though. I arranged for an ancient Dovecot in Bridlington also set in a woodland to be listed and 'We got it done' (without sounding too political I hope!) I was surprised that wasn't listed already too.
