I recently photographed a derelict church called Zoar Graig, just on the border of Brecon and Monmouthshire. I had driven past the churchyard many times and saw that it was a ruin, and that there was a earth mover parked outside.
So I finally got to the site to photograph it, and found the graveyard in a very overgrown and untended state. This possibly has to be the worst graveyard I've seen so far.
The church is just a shell, and many of the graves are smashed or knocked over. The graveyard perimeter is difficult to find as it is so overgrown, and there were several goats munching their way through the undergrowth!
Still, after clambering around for a bit, I photographed as much of the site as was possible. A week later I noticed that a sturdy metal fence had been erected around the property, preventing any access to the site at all.
