An Unexpected Church Find.
St Matthews Anglican Church at Fernside, near Cust in North Canterbury is a pretty little number, tucked into a stand of big oak trees. I came upon it on a Sunday drive and, following the sign off the main highway, came upon at the juncture of four narrow country roads. Sadly it backs onto a giant poultry farm and the smell was appalling. I hate to think what it must be like to have to sit through a church service there, with the odour of smelly chooks filtering between the pews. It doesn't bear thinking about. But I did love the bell tower!
