St Paul's Church - West Yorkshire | 02/15
This property was a little harder to find information on as it has a particularly uneventful past but here goes!
Designed by JB Chantrell, St. Paul's was completed in 1846 in an Early English style featuring a large gothic tower overlooking the village of Denholme. The constructions of the church cost Â£3,700 in total, a number that would have been significantly higher if not for the members of the parish contributing to the construction in their spare time.
St Paul's Church was granted grade II listed status meaning that it may not be demolished, extended, or altered without special permission from the local planning authority, but in 1997, soon after it's 150th anniversary the ceiling and roof were deemed unsafe and the church closed soon after this for repairs. Upon further inspection the repairs needed were found to be extensive and with great reluctance the building and part of the churchyard were put up for sale.
Soon after it's closure the Church of England removed a significant amount of the valuable items from within the property under the English Heritage's instructions, these items include but are not limited to the font, organ, bells and all of the stained glass windows from the ground floor.
Although the old church building is now closed (and ruined) the graveyard is still open to new burials.
