St. Michael's in Dulas is currently listed as "unsafe to use" due to decades of neglect.  One might suspect that those who "clamp" there might discover prayer as they hear old timbers creaking in the wind, sometimes falling in.  

It's also quite near a town--about a mile--and is right across the street from a residence that would be a darling B&B if the owners were so minded.  Count me uneasy about this, especially as the church consists really of a main hall and vestibule--you can't put pods in there without totally disrupting things architecturally.  Maybe a good place for a Baptist church plant?

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
