Another covid casualty: St Mary in the Castle, Hastings. This weird old building is a decommissioned church that has been used as a music venue since 1997.

Uncle B and I have been to a few events there over the years and we’ve always remarked what a nightmare it must be to keep up. It’s Grade II* listed (any work done there is hellishly expensive) and it’s built right into the cliff face. In fact, I think parts of the back wall are literally the stone cliff.

Can you say damp?

The acoustics weren’t great but the building was a treat. I suppose it will deteriorate pretty fast if it’s left empty for any length of time.

And, yes, this was the exciting post I forgot to hit SEND on last night.
