St Paul, Armitage Road, Armitage Bridge, West Yorkshire HD4 7PD View on map
An 1848 building of fine quality and rich in carved detail, of which the tower survives unaltered. Seriously damaged by fire in 1987 the church was thoroughly rebuilt to the designs of Richard Shepley and re-dedicated in 1990. Elegant post fire fittings include a font with a pyramidal metal bowl and a good iron stair balustrade. Weavers style windows match those in the historic preserved mill village in which the church is set.
