A Welsh couple have been ordered to pay over £200,000 to a parish church after an arcane piece of land law led them unwittingly to become ‘lay rectors’ of the building.

The judgement has left Mr and Mrs Wallbank in financial ruin.

Vicar of St John the Baptist, Father David Addley, said he was pleased the issue had been resolved: “It’s been hanging over us all this time. I’m pleased it’s at an end.”

My opinion of the Church of England was already very low due to their attempted takeover of my old school (www.savethebluecoat.webeden.co.uk) but their treatment of the Wallbanks took my breath away. Have they no scruples at all? They need exposing for the mercenary predatory hypocrites they really are!
