Random Folk

Husb and I went to a meeting in our area this evening, a group of like-minded people looking at the feasibility of raising money to convert an empty church into a community arts / cultural facility. It’s an historic Victorian building, Grade II listed by Cadw and it would be a shame to see it remain empty or to be used for something that would take it out of community use. Of course I had a quick scribble, very quick, just a couple of minutes as I had to concentrate on what was going on. I sketched into my Peter Pauper Press A5 sketchbook with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen.

 

Here’s the old church, St. Jude’s on Terrace Road in Swansea.

Wish us luck 🙂

    Good luck with the church. I hope its in reasonable nick – those buildings can be expensive to get up and running (perhaps I’ve been watching too many episodes of the Restoration Man)

      There’s an architect in the group and he’s had a look around and it seems in very good condition, new roof, it was in use until the summer. If it’s left empty for any length of time, it’ll deteriorate so hopefully the group can get in soon.

        That’s good to hear. All relevant fingers crossed for you all.

    Smashing drawings and a wonderful idea to convert the church – good luck with that!
