I’ve been photographing churches for several years, especially since my retirement in 2011. In December 2012 as I had a number of photos of churches in London it seemed a good idea to share them, especially as there seemed to be no comprehensive site for Greater London churches. From a fairly casual state it is now growing into a reasonably systematic coverage of the city.
I do all the visiting without using a car, making use of public transport and my own two feet. In London this allows me to use many short cuts and to get a much better appreciation of the area and environment in which the church sits.
Rather than building a new website I decided to use the WordPress blogging software that seemed to offer a very quick and efficient way to build what is basically a reference directory, even though the software is designed to produce an online diary. Each page is built using a simple template into which text, pictures can easily be added. Using the category feature it is also easy to add some indexing for each church, enabling simple pages for a location or architect to be displayed at a click.
