It’s hard to tell from the article but I think this skate church set up is an annual event that last for a short period of days and not a permanent fixture in the Malmesbury Abbey that was more or less built by 1180 A.D.. Sure, the heating bill is a bit steep, but look at that view.. Location, location, location. Insert real estate joke here, wait, are didn’t I just use them all? But seriously, what an interesting venue. The event was secular, more of a community outreach than proselytizing scenario. Come for the skateboarding, stay for the architecture.
