Photographer's Note

Located at the town of St George, Unfinished Church in Bermuda is an elegant edifice.

The construction work began in the 1870s when the St Peters Church was badly damaged by a storm and was thought to be beyond repair. So a new church had to be built.

Although the construction work of the new church was started, it could not be completed due to various reasons.
One of the main reasons was strong difference in opinion within the parishioners. A local population felt that they would rather invest the money in repairing the old church instead of building a new one. There was also severe fund problems. The construction of this unfinished church was almost immediately stopped.

Today, the picturesque ruins are a protected historic monument and part of the St. George's World Heritage Site.

UPDATE (December 2010): The unfinished church has been closed to the public by order from Bermuda National Trust which is in charge of administration of this heritage property. Weathering due to wind and water has caused major structural deterioration causing risks to the visitors. Crumbling masonry is the main danger. The church will remain closed until repairing is completed.
