Church of Christ the King, Bowburn

  • Description

    "Built in 1976, this striking futuristic church stood in the former mining village of Bowburn. Unfortunately, it suffered serious design faults and was closed in September 2004. At the time of photography the building was in a sorry state with the roof in a poor state of repair, and the whole premises fortified like Fort Knox against vandals. The building was demolished in May 2007, just leaving the cross standing." Photo by Oliver Dixon, 2007.
