Inside a former church earmarked for demolition has been revealed by an urban explorer.


scrappyNW was granted permission by the owners of St Teresa’s Roman Catholic Church in Church Avenue, Fishwick, to see how it is faring up.

It seems the roof is intact of the church, which has plans lodged to become a 30-bed care home.

Proposals from Exemplar Health Care include demolishing the church as well as the church hall and presbytery.
