Clayton Church, Lodge, Public Building

Posted by

Originally this was built as a lodge, but over the years it has fulfilled many different needs for a building this size in Clayton. The sayings in stone on each side of the building speak to its original "service" role. I spot a church each Sunday in support of inSPIREd Sunday.

Interesting building but definitely does not have that churchy look to it.

This building does not look like a church a lot such as we imagine it but more to a school. Beautiful bricks

It does look to have seen a few changes in its time . . would love to see what it was like in days gone by.

Good looking building. I have the same sentiments of a few people, doesn't look like a church to me either.

I think I see some snow in the shade here. A neat shot of this building with evolving roles.

Yes, it does look more like a meeting building, or perhaps a library than a church. Nice straight shot.

I'm intrigued by the clock. Looks like a little man whose arms tell the time.
