Church of St John, Wakefield Road - Bradford

Dating to 1842, this church was built at the expense of the Bowling Iron Company. The architects, RH and S Sharpe of York, were assisted by Fred Stott, works engineer at the Bowling Foundry, as its construction made extensive use of iron. Roof coverings, rainwater goods and cast iron windows are in poor condition.
