Interesting link in dervish's St Mary's in the Wood tale to nowthen.org which I hadn't heard of before. It's a sort of memories archive for groups provided by WYAS.

It's currently mainly Bradford-centric but there are contributions from various other groups with memories of Leeds Utd and Leeds RL etc.    
There is enough sadness in life without having fellows like Gussie Fink-Nottle going about in sea boots.

Really quite feasible, don't forget there was an older church there before the 19th century present one - Oh and its the Minster now! Thanks QEII!

It would be good to put names on the site when finding old graves, it might show up in a google search for people tracing family history. Years would be good too ie 1789 - 1822
Is it me or has Leeds gone mad

Hi polo if you go inside the church on thr right side near the alter there is a grave stone to someone called Hardwike date 1670 it states that it was removed from behind the alter of the old church and was moved when the new church was built.
