A Festival of Crosses

Photographs from the All Saints Festival of Crosses.


This curious item, which normally lives in the Sacristy, is thought to be a model of the Architect's first proposal for the High Altar, though it bears little resemblance to the Altar and Reredos as built.

Finally, two other pictures taken this morning, showing the rapidly changing landscape visible from St Mary's, as a new Supermarket takes shape. Most of Elland is probably unaware that it is being built upon land that was a part of the Churchyard, before various Victorian remodellings of the road system.
