    July seems to be turning in to the month of the church, this one being a enormous Catholic church of Cathedral-esque proportions just behind the Urban Gash Saxton Gardens development.

    Interestingly, due to the large Irish population in Leeds, this church was devoted to those suffering the effects of the potato famine of the mid 1850s. To quote Alan Partridge:

    Visited with Mr.C & Mr.F on a horrid rainy afternoon, however, once inside this rather decrepit church, the light of the heavens shone down upon us. Props to SammyDoubleWhammy for the pointers.

    Here’s some history stolen mercilessly from another source.

    Here’s a few pics.
