    Every nice old looking building in Barry, the bastards demolish it for new builds. If it's a listed building they just let it go to ruin or a suspicious fire occurs! Corrupt twats the Vale Council.

    They're ripping down St Pauls church just up from me. What's it going to be. Oh yeah an Ikea looking bunch of flats. With inadequate parking no doubt.
    Barry is being turned into a dormitory suburb of Cardiff :nqat:

    I saw that mate, so sad, lovely building too. I was Christened in there and my daughter was.

    At least they've done a nice job on the other 2 churches by you, they look great. Pity about the parking problems though.

    Used to buy my fags and paper in there on my way to work every morning 45 years ago. The lane at the side of the shop used to be full of used dunkies from where the prossies took their punters for a shag.
