Was spending a few days up in Yorkshire this weekend, and thought it may be rude not to do a derp.......... so after joining up with two of yorkshires finest sires (in the form of Clough and GeoVdub) we hopped of.... to errrr Lancashire, to check out this little church which has been appearing of late!

A little bit of History:-

The architect employed by Mr. Maden Holt was E. Wyndham Tarn of London. The church, 120 ft. long and 53 ft. wide was built in the Early Pointed Gothic style from stone quarried on Mr. Holt's estate with pillars of polished red granite. Seating accommodation was provided for 1,000 people. The tower, which stands on the north side of the chancel, is surmounted by a spire 150 ft. in height. A small transept was built on the south side of the church. It was used originally as a pew for the Holt family but later the font was transferred to this chapel from its former position in the chancel. The church contains a baptistry for the immersion of adults. It is sunk in the chancel floor and is covered by an ornamental grating.

When the Reverend Eddie Ashworth retired in 1999 the parish became a joint benifice with Holy Trinity Church, Stacksteads. The Church held it's final service in October 2007 and the parish merged with Holy Trinity, Tunstead.
Our little mooch also saw us running into Judderman and Zero81, which was nice :D .... and here is a few pictures (the few i had that weren't succesfully trolled by Geo's head)
