Holy Spirit Church

Two days back I visited another Leeds church, Holy Spirit Parish Church at Beeston, Leeds. I used to pass this church quite often many years ago, but I rarely travel to Beeston these days and had never looked around Holy Spirit. It had rather slipped by me until I was reading the website for Treasures Revealed in Leeds a few days back and discovered that time is running out for this early Edwardian church. Jack the treasurer of the church was kind and gave me a viewing of the church at short notice. The day was very dull and also it was raining heavily both prior to my arrival and also when I left. Not a good day to make a fine old building look at its best. The church opened back in 1903, being built in Gothic Revival style. Inside there are some rather nice old carved wooden panel and other pieces. The church is surprisingly large, being bigger than I had thought. Today it is listed as Grade II and its future as a building is very uncertain, there is no vicar and it is soon to close as a church. The church of the Holy Spirit on Tempest Road, Beeston is open for Treasures Revealed on Sun 6th May from 10am – 4pm.

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.
