Longland Road, Donemana, Strabane, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland
This picturesque little church & cemetery was constructed in 1879 to house a congregation of 300 worshipers from the local parish. I love its placement as it fringes on the local Donemana village border. Idyllically seated so even today it’s not congested & surrounded by “sprung up” modern constructions around it.
Saint James Church still stands proudly on a natural open-air landscape, surrounded by lush rolling green fields & to its rear an ancient woodland likely predating the church itself. Its clean natural blend with its environment is a timeless credit to both its builders & its current custodians ?
