THE LEANING CHURCH
This unusual church is St Martin's Church, Cwmyoy in the Black Mountains of Wales. No, it isn't falling down but yes, it is leaning! The peculiar angle of the Church is due to the unstable rock on which it is built. Consequently, no part of it is square or at right angles with any other part.
From the interior view of St Martin's, it is plain to see that everything leans - note the steps and the window in the sanctuary.
This lovely little church predates the Norman Conquest and it is still in use today.
