Russian Wooden Churches

In the on-line version of the Daily Mail newspaper today, there was a truly remarkable article about ancient wooden churches in Northern Russia.

The photographs were amazing, beautiful and heart-breakingly sad as many of the ancient wooden churches are in isolated areas, have fallen into serious disrepair and it is well beyond the financial ability of the local inhabitants to pay for restoration work.


 
 
A book has been produced about these amazing churches, and there is an exquisitely illustrated website too.
 It would be good to spread the word and see if there is any way we can help to preserve these churches..........
