Rainy Day

Rain Wing Mirror

Today here in Leeds it rained, all day and it is still raining as I write this. I often travel into Leeds city centre on the local train and as I look out of the window on the approach to Leeds city station I see in the near distance a church spire. This spire and the church that it belongs to has been puzzling me for some time, I have over the past couple of years on this blog visited many of the churches around the city but not this one.

Today I drove near to a church that was new to me, or rather I had long forgotten it, in Holbeck and realised that this was the mystery church. No longer a church, today the church of St Matthew in Holbeck is now a community centre and has been so for some years.

The next time I am nearby on a sunny-ish day I will take some photographs of the exterior and the adjacent burial ground and post more about this former church. On my journey back along the Stanningley by-pass I pulled into a lay-by, parked up and took the above photo with my Blackberry. As can be seen it was very damp, a nice bit of Yorkshire understatement..
