Church of St Thomas, Marsh Hall Lane, Kirkburton - Kirklees

Gothic Revival church by James Mallinson and William Swinden Barber consecrated in 1870. The church comprises five-bay nave and two-bay chancel with organ chamber and vestry on north side and three-stage tower with spire on south side. The east window is in poor condition, held in place with temporary supports; roofs, rainwater goods and masonry also poor. An unsuccessful application to Heritage Lottery Fund's Grants for Places of Worship scheme was made in 2017.
