Warehouse Wednesday: Architectural Salvage

In the south end of Leamington, on a road called Batch Place, there used to be a church. It became a community centre and then someone set fire to it.

Rather than restore the building to its original state, it's been turned into flats. The roofline has largely been preserved but it's obviously a new building. One nice touch I spotted is the inclusion of some original windows in the ends. They are unglazed, but a welcome link to the old church.

I wonder if modellers could pinch this feature? There are lots of nice mouldings for church windows out there. Perhaps an interesting addition to a modern model?
