All Saints’ Parish Church, Otley
Kirkgate, Otley, West Yorkshire, LS21 3HW
Otley Parish Church is a Grade I listed building with parts dating from the 11th century. It is the oldest building in the town. The church building has many interesting features which will be highlighted and sections of Saxon Crosses found on the site can be seen on request.. Historical documents, photographs and rarely seen archive material will be on display. In the churchyard, the impressive Navvies' Monument can be viewed with explanation provided about its history and conservation plans. There will be guided tours of the church - one exploring the history of the building and the second entitled "Mysteries of the Monuments - a glimpse into local family history". Accompanied children are welcome, with self-guided history trails available for both them and adults. There will be a number of rolling slide presentations, include ones on the the stained glass windows, a virtual tower tour and the latest reordering of this ancient building. Recent work in the churchyard to reflect the town's heritage will be highlighted. Refreshments will be available throughout the Heritage Weekend.
