Kilburn Wriggly Tin Temple © EdificePhoto.comOver the next three days we will be celebrating the contribution that corrugated iron sheeting has made to the appearance of our post Industrial Revolution world. The Corrugated-Iron-Club.info web site suggests, "The material has not had a homogenising influence mainly because it lends itself to small scale, self-build enterprises which reflect a precise functional response to need."

Contributors [pages] [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13] may be sufficient in number and content to convince you that there are independently minded people who appreciate this material.

For more on the Kilburn building, a former church now used by a youth group, check out gallery [5] from François Crompton-Roberts, with a link to other corrugated iron religious building sites, or Tin Tabernacles as they are affectionately known.
