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.
There are a total of 20 pictures I have taken in and around the church with 17 available to view in the album below or on Flickr full size and an additional 3 exclusive to Clickasnap via the links below.

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.
The following 3 links take you to my exclusive Clickasnap pictures taken at the church. Each view of over 10 seconds helps support my photography.
All 3 of the pictures can only be seen on Clickasnap and each link opens in another window.
The following pictures are from the Flickr album.
