    If you are interested in wriggley tin buildings and follow the A66 , then just a few miles east of Temple Sowerby , just 1/4 mile before the western slip-road in to the village of Crackenthorpe. There still stands the most tiny tin-tabernacle church / tin-chapel , abt. 40 years ago it was quite pristine , it stands only 10 ft away from the A66 - if ever the road is made Dual-Carriageway in total LoL - then I suspect it will go in some re-alignment. In passing I have noticed the steady deterioration , it must have been made from good stuff but probably too new for the original thicker iron sheets ?

    The de Havilland Aircraft Museum is currently fund raising for a new hangar. If the hangar is still looking for a new home perhaps you or the farmer could contact the museum.

    Another museum that may like it, is the Newark Air Museum:-

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    That would be a good one if they go for it

    Are you able to reveal at which Oxfordshire airfield site the hangar is located?

    That could well be one of the famous Boulton & Paul corrugated iron clad chapels . We still have one here at Old Heath on the outskirts of Colchester . Not many left now .

    Thereís an unusual church in Deepcut. Itís St Barbaraís, the garrison church of the Royal Logistic Corps (I meant, the RAOC!). The Church was built in 1901 to serve the Deepcut and Blackdown army training camps, and was dedicated as St Michael and All Angels Garrison Church. It was only in 1967 that the church was re-named St Barbaraís Garrison Church.
    Built from wood and corrugated iron, itís an interesting, and quirky church. No good as an aircraft hangar though. As you would expect in a garrison church, it contains flags, memorial plaques, and has some wonderful stained glass windows. My REME father married his first wife, a WRAC, there in 1950 or 51.
