Three Post War Churches in Leeds by Geoffrey Davy : St Cyprian and St James, Harehills, St David, Waincliffe, St Paul, Ireland Wood

Author(s): John Minnis

The three churches, St Cyprian and St James, St David and St Paul, designed by Geoffrey Davy and built between 1959 and 1965, are the most striking of their period in Leeds. They display an awareness of advances in liturgical thinking through the architect's membership of the New Churches Research Group, demonstrate the care that went into their design and detailing and show how the example of Le Corbusier's chapel at Ronchamp influenced the work of a provincial British practice.
