Slightly Strange

There is a church on the outskirts of Horsham which is always known locally as The Doomsday Church. It's set against a woodland backdrop off a fairly isolated road with only a few houses nearby and is always locked.

If you double click it to enlarge it there looks to be some grey fingers cosying up to my pink ones...I'm sure it's just a reflection yet I still can't work out what exactly it is I'm looking at.

If you're wondering, this is the place where the events dramatised for last week's episode of the Channel 4 series "True Horror" was based [although they used a different location for the filming]
