Cemetery
“Ignore the yard bit, this is for the Church itself! It's a bit of a random one to add in this one, but the church was known as "The Miner's Cathedral" It's very gothic and imposing from the ouside - inside it has a high roof and lots of columns, some ornate wood work, and a beautiful blue roof with gold stars above the altar. ”
