Good Evening All. Methinks tis time for another GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD. As usual the postcard reveals no clues as it is unposted and has just a bog-standard divided back, no publisher or anything else to go on. click here

I think morddwyd is on the right track, but I think it is in the category of brickworks. I have not had the time to look at many - one at Ibstock is an example:

The thin black 'stack' and two white roundish shapes on the RHS, would match up with your link pics, jb. I think we are getting there...

by 'types' of church, do you mean building style, or denomination flavour?

The one nearest the front looks plain Methodist, the left middle ground one has a square tower, but I doubt that it's Norman and the one on the skyline has a steeple and looks Victorian to me from that distance.

Does that help anyone?
