Nice save!

Out of interest, do you know when the fire was?

No, I don't Paul, sorry.

I tried 'googling' but couldn't find anything specific.

From: http://arts.st-andrews.ac.uk/~cmas/site.php?id=125116

According to a notice on the site, this was done after the church was burned down in 1984, having passed out of use in 1980.

There are photos of the site and the church building before demolition.
