Church interior
Undated, Interior view of St. Matthew's Church, which was consecrated in 1900 and was designed by G.F. Bodley, R.A. The church cost in the region of £20,000 to build and the architecture is fourteenth century in style. Here, the clustered columns and pointed arches of the arcades can be seen. The photograph was probably taken soon after the building's completion and certainly before the installation of the stained glass which made the interior very much darker. The organ, just seen in the background, dates from about 1900 and was the work of Messrs. Abbott & Smith of Leeds. It was donated by John William Naylor. The organ was later rebuilt for £60,000 by John Jackson Ltd.
