All Hallows


Location; 5 miles south of Wetherby on the A58 to Leeds. Multimap

Description; The nave dates from the 9th Century, as does the lower part of the tower, built originally as a porch and converted into a tower in the 11th Century. The outline of the porch roof can still be seen in the west wall of the tower.

The original Saxon roof lines can also be seen in the chancel and nave walls. The chancel itself was demolished and rebuilt, twice it's original length, in the 14th Century. The nave was widened in the 12th Century by piercing the side walls with round headed arches to produce two isles. The remaining Saxon windows were blocked up.
