Flaybrick Cemetery - Roman Catholic Chapel 1878
Which is no longer there.
Hopefully someone can post when it was demolished and removed.

I have heard it wasn't too long ago (80's or 90's)

Its said that this was built to notify the churches existence.
If its part of the actual church is unknown.

Below ive added a video of the area i took the pictures.

Nice one, looks a very impressive building, will be interested to see what the reasons for it being knocked down were... I suppose it most probably just fell into dis-repair.

What religion is the main church? COE?

By baptism im a Roman Catholic lol.

Ive since found out that, the Roman Catholic Church
was demolished between 1963 - 1979

My Source, played on and around it before joining the army.
When he came out the army 1979 it was gone.

So some dates to work from there.
And at a guess is fell into disrepair?
