Leeds Parish Church

Leeds Parish ChurchPicture of Leeds Parish Church.

This view of Leeds Parish Church is not the one that most people would think of. I took this photo looking at the side of the church from the West. Because of the proximity of nearby buildings you cannot get further away which would enable a bit more of the tower to be visible.

This current church was built by the then Vicar of Leeds Walter Farquhar Hook (13 March 1798 – 20 October 1875) and it was consecrated on 2 September 1841 with Florence Nightingale in the congregation.


  1. A wonderful church - love your shot of the interior from yesterday too!

  2. It certainly is a wonderful old building, the architecture of those days is so much more complicated in design. Fab photo Paul.

  3. this is a gorgeous capture of a beautiful church.


Thanks so much for visiting my Leeds in Yorkshire photography blog
and for your much appreciated comments. If you leave a question relating to today's photograph or commentary, I'll do my best to give an answer, so do come back later. Thanks.
