Church of St Paul, Queen's Road, King Cross - Calderdale

Large parish church of 1911 to 1912 in the free-Perpendicular style by Sir Charles Nicholson. The church comprises a three-stage west tower; nave with aisles and porches; chancel with chapel, vestries and an organ chamber with a south-west bellcote turret. Masonry is in very poor condition, particularly to the tower which suffers extensive water ingress. Tower roof is also poor. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship Project Development grant was accepted in 2017.
