Halifax Minster.

Halifax Minster or to use it's full title, the Parish Church of St John the Baptist is one of only 3 minsters that can be found in the county of West Yorkshire with the others being at Leeds and Dewsbury.

A Brief History of the Minster
There has been a church on or near this site for over 900 years. The minster which was a Parish Church until November 2009 was completed in about 1458. Parts of the church date from the 12th century and additions have been made several time since the church was completed.
Some of the stained glass windows were removed during the 17th century as
 the Puritan movement was prominent within the town, but where possible these have since been restored.

A lot of my pictures were lost from Flickr a couple of years ago, the 3 below are all that remain, I am attempting to find the others and hopefully will.

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