With their own special charm and character, the few remaining corrugated iron chapels, often known as ‘Tin Tabernacles’, as well as other Victorian and Edwardian iron buildings, are rapidly disappearing from Dorset. This book pictures those still standing in 2012 but also includes several iron buildings from the 1930’s and 40’s that have an important social and historical significance. The history of the invention and manufacture of corrugated iron is covered and the author shows the way some iron buildings have been restored to extend their use for years to come.
