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. Sections of Saxon Crosses found on the site are on display. The church building has many interesting features which will be highlighted. Historical documents, photographs and rarely seen archive material will be on display. There will also be guided tours - 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 a self-guided history trail available for them. The church tower will be open at certain times with opportunity to go up as far as the bell chamber. There will be a number of rolling slide presentations, include ones on the the stained glass windows and the latest reordering of this ancient building. Refreshments will be available throughout the Heritage Weekend. Additionally, there will be more comprehensive food provision during the regular Friday and Saturday morning cafes.
This event took place in September 2016 and the entry is now archived.
