Well it was the diocese as well I think, so the collections and the donations, plus all those payday loan profits eh? Disgusting. Just thinking about Christ throwing one at the money changers. How could they have done it?.

Anyway. I was up there in the summer and they will be charging visitors from this year to look around.

We took the kids to York in the summer and they wanted 10 quid. Tear them down in my opinion. It's a disgrace

I'm actually surprised the attendance figure is as high as 750,000, I expected lower than that.
I often chuckle at the large and beautiful Anglican church in my street which see's a mere handful of pensioners shuffling out every Sunday.
It will be no surprise when that church gets sold and turned into something else, it has a lovely sea view.

Christian nation though? I haven't thought that about the UK for a long time, and even if the Anglican Church completely folded I can't imagine how it would affect my life in any way whatsoever.

That was my point in the OP mate,

At some point we have to leave religion behind, I just wonder how low figures will have to get before it happens.

Agreed, and I also wonder how low the numbers need to drop before the Church of England loses any alleged mandate or justification for having bishops sitting in the House of Lords, voting on issues which affect the other 60 odd million people who do not attend it's churches?
