Todmorden Unitarian Church.

Todmorden Unitarian Church is a redundant Unitarian church, now under the management of the historic chapels trust, which is located at Honey Hole Road, OL14 6LE, near the centre of Todmorden, West Yorkshire.

Work started on the church in 1865 paid for by brothers, Joshua, John and Samuel who built the church in the memory of there father "Honest John" John Fielden at a cost of £35,000 (equivalent to £3,074,555 at June 2017 on land that the family owned and only using the best materials they could find and in a gothic style with a tall imposing spire. The first sermon was in April 1869 and the church was continuously in use until 1987 when it fell in to disrepair due to decay and vandalism. In 1994 the Historic Chapels Trust took over the church and started a £1,000,000 refurbishment and repair program and the church began services began again in 2008. Grade I listed status was granted on the 22nd November 1966.

I have visited the church grounds on many occasions and the following images are the result of those visits, using several different cameras and at different times of the year.

Thanks for looking and please take a moment to share, all the images remain the copyright of Colin Green
