St Thomas Church Leeds

St Thomas Church Leeds

This is the church of St Thomas in Stanningley on the edge of Leeds, which I visited earlier today.

I am not sure why I seem to have missed visiting this rather nice old church before, but I had passed it a couple of times over the last few weeks and so stopped off today for a quick look around. The church itself was locked and there was no one around.

St Thomas the church was built in 1841, or more likely completed in 1841 and consecrated that year in the presence of Dr Hook who was then Vicar of Leeds and the Vicar of Bramley in whose parish this then was.

The church itself was built in a Norman style with a tower and is today a listed building being Grade II.

The churchyard is rather overgrown but it does have some rather nice wildflowers, which in my view is no bad thing. It could perhaps do with some churchyard sheep or perhaps goats.

Sometime soon I will try to have a look inside this church.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
