We are relatively recent converts to the Friends of Friendless Churches and have still not managed to see any in England; but in North Wales, they look after some of the most profound and moving chapels and small churches and they do so in the most unobtrusive and sympathetic way – lowkey, keeping the churches open, trusting visitors to respect what they are seeing, with minimal intervention and interpretation. I greatly admire this approach to the preservation of the past. It allows the buildings to survive without telling one what to think or feel. So far as I can tell, it is run by one person only, so its overheads must be minimal. This is only a way of saying that it’s a very good cause. See attached.
