Religious Shed Week: Hayes Pastures Farm B&B

For the third instalment of this week's religious sheds festival, we've entered the cobwebby Shedworking time machine to hurtle back to 2009 when we featured Muriel Richards who runs Hayes Pastures Farm B&B in Worcestershire and the property's shedlike chapel built in their back garden. Here's a reminder of what we said then:
It's taken them a couple of years and £25,000 to build what their local vicar has named The Chapel of the Crosses where there is room for a respectable 12 in the congregation. It measures 8ft x 12ft and has everything you'd expect including stained glass, pews, and a large bronze crucifixion figure: much of the interior has been recycled from old church buildings from around the country. Commendably, the doors are never locked and guests at the B&B can use it whenever they want to visit. There is a Holy Communion Service there held by the Parish Vicar at 9.30am on the fifth Tuesday of the month.
There are some nice photos of a Good Friday service there in 2015 at the Redditch Advertiser including worshippers carrying a cross up the hill to the church.
