St Marks Church, Otipua, South Canterbury

Today I went for a wee drive (about 5 minutes from where I live) to the very small rural settlement of Otipua. This is where the old St Mark's Anglican Church is situated. Built on a small hill in 1893 of local bluestone it is surrounded by large trees & rhodo's. Sadly, the grounds aren't being cared for and I think the church is not longer used - the door was locked.

I think my preference is for number two - I like the additional colour and detail. I also like the colour in your last image.
