Wharton Lane Presbyterian Church was founded around 1850 and closed around 1970. The building was at risk of mining subsidence from the local pits, so the members began to worship in a different venue and the old church (in the first pic) was demolished. The small ramshackle graveyard is all that remains now, and shows signs of subsidence from the surrounding coal mining activity.

I know it's non-urbex but it was such an odd little site I had to take pics!
