‘The Lost Churches of Leeds, 1800-1900’ by Revd Dr Roy Yates

A remarkable number of Anglican churches were built in Leeds in the nineteenth century as the Church of England attempted to meet the needs of the rapidly growing population. But during the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries many of these churches became redundant as people moved from the city centre to the suburbs. Using photographs and prints from the Thoresby Society's collection, Roy Yates recalls some of the fine churches that the city has lost.

This is a FREE event but booking is essential.
