Summary Description

The church building, the first on the site, was begun in 1846 and completed in 1848, and is in English style designed by C W Burleigh. It is set in Woodside, a part of the town of Horsforth, and was originally built to meet the needs of the expanding Woodside community who had moved into the area to work in the newly built mills in the adjacent valley. The church building originally comprised a Nave and Chancel with a North Aisle and North Porch. It is built in coursed yellow sandstone with Burlington Slate roofs. In 1904 the South Aisle was added using similar materials to the original building but with contemporary internal styling.
