Gothic Tower


This is the top half of the tower of the church dedicated to St. Edward King and Confessor in the small village of Clifford, West Yorkshire. Apparently, the church was built to serve Irish workers of a local flax mill. This is a Roman Catholic church, as this would have been the religion of the mill workers, with the majority of the local people followers of the Church of England.  The tower was completed in 1866/7 – from my point of view, a relatively new church, I just paused on my bicycle ride to snap a couple of pictures.

I’d normally put this sort of thing on my other site (ecclesiarum) but as it’s not a true representation, i.e. I’ve flipped it horizontally….. artistic licence!
