Hidden Henley

THIS curious church is in the countryside hamlet of Warren Row.

THIS curious church is in the countryside hamlet of Warren Row.

Although many buildings were made from corrugated iron from the mid-19th century onwards, there are few of them left.

The slang for them is “tin tabernacle”, although no tin is involved. The panels were pressed in factories and then electrically coated with zinc for rust resistance.

This mass production gave the opportunity for quick, cheap and practical buildings which served as everything from pigsties to churches such as this one.

I think the building has charm and character and I thoroughly recommend taking a look in person.
