Countywide Church Locking Status Map (Work in Progress)
For the church coverage map, click here!
Please be aware that all church locking statuses are provided in good faith. Circumstances may have changed since the status was published. Several people assist me in the maintenance of these locking statuses. If I am told that a status has changed, I try to update it quickly.
Please also be aware that it is not possible to provide individual opening details for each church. Therefore 'daylight hours' could be 9am-3pm for one church, and true daylight hours for another. Try to avoid very early or very late visits.
