How Geocaching Works

This old church has been uprooted twice, well worth a look despite its present use.
The Norwegian Church is a Grade II listed building originally located at Newport Docks. The building is comprised of a Seaman’s Mission to the west end and a single gothic church to the east end. It was originally built as a place of worship for Norwegian sailors when they visited the UK. It was relocated to Swansea in 1910 at a site directly opposite the Sainsbury's supermarket on the River Tawe. With the redevelopment of the district, the building had to be relocated again. The building was covered in scaffolding and carefully dismantled and relocated alongside two other historic listed buildings - the Ice House and J Shed. The building was used as an art exhibition, then a Jewellery shop.
