Churches and Churchyards! -7-

This visit takes us to a slightly different place!

Westbury Leigh Church and Community Hall.

“There cannot be many 19th century churches in England that have been converted so successfully as Westbury Leigh Community Hall. Sympathetically altered in 2000 to preserve the essence of the original church, the hall modestly boasts – amongst other impressive features – a main hall measuring some 17m by 7m, benefiting from under floor heating beneath a wonderful beech floor. This hall, which enjoys views up to the original and restored beamed church ceiling, boasts original stone walls, a stage (measuring 7m x 2m), four original windows, a hatch to the kitchen, and three hardwood framed glass screens, one of which contains partition doors that can be opened into the chancel of the church.”

I must be honest the “change of use” certainly surprised me. How wonderful that they have made such a positive step towards getting full use out of this building. Seems like a win win to me.
