The Tin Tabernacle of Barcombe

Deep in the rural landscape outside Lewes stands this iconic building. Although I know it is there I am always taken by surprise when I come upon it, thinking how it would look more in keeping somewhere like Patagonia or Arkansas. But no, luckily for us it stands on the edge of the village of Barcombe for all to take pleasure in seeing as they pass. And pass I did, one sparkly winter day. The sky could not have been bluer as a backdrop to the sun shining squarely onto the front of the Tin Tabernacle. I loved the random shadows of dancing tree branches playing over the linearity of corrugated tin.
