Fodor's Expert Review Unfinished Church

St. George's and The Eastern Parishes Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Work began on this intended replacement for St. Peter's Church in 1874, but just as it neared completion, construction was halted by storm damage and disagreements within the church community. Hence the massive Gothic Revival pile sat—unfinished and crumbling—until the Bermuda National Trust stepped in to stabilize the structure in 1992. With soaring stone walls, a grassy floor, and only the sky for a roof, it's the sort of atmospheric ruin that poets and painters so admire. The inside of the building isn't currently accessible to the public, but part of the church is still opened for weddings.
