"Hightower Church", a lovely, crumbling gothic church

Foot-tall grass and weeds surrounded this old church like soldiers besieging a castle. The walls stood firm and church seemed no worse for wear... once inside however, it was clear its true enemies were time, neglect, and water damage.

Imagine how many feet crossed this threshold to observe this once-majestic feat of architecture while demonstrating their faith. Imagine how those souls would feel now, looking upon the ruins of its neglected former beauty.
