    Heyyy, I've been there! Wonderful shot, and I really like how you included the fisherman in the foreground. Nice reflection, too, of the church tower, and as is often the case in that part of the world, beautiful clouds

    Such a cool shot. The building there is weird to begin with and the fisherman just adds to it, I really like it

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I went to photograph this building, and was pleased to find the fisherman to give me some foreground interest. I've never felt that this particular answer to the church's preservation did it any favours - it took away all its dignity.

    Regards, Tony

    The alternative was to bulldoze it like the rest of the village, which would have taken away everything.
    As it is it serves as a reminder that a community was submerged to make the pond - so the fact that the church looks like it is sinking is apt.

    (I remember them building the Pond so I remember how it was like before they filled it with fish...)

    Hertz, I don't think it was a choice between demolition and this particular solution. A number of English churches have been disassembled and reassembled elsewhere. That would have been a better answer, but required the will to find the money to do it. Another solution (again used elsewhere) was to rescue the architecturally significant parts, principally Cockerell's tower and the colonnade, and re-site them on the shore as an "eyecatcher" memorial.

    Regards, Tony
