Methley Church, interior view to the East window.

Methley Church, interior view to the East window.
Undated. Interior view of Methley Church, Church of St. Oswald looking towards the east window. The present East window with five lights dates from 1926. The nave measures almost 57 feet (approx. 17 metres) and there is an aisle of three bays of about 13 feet (nearly 4 metres) wide, with pointed arches supported on low octagonal piers, right. The Church was reseated in 1624 but the benches seen here, with poppy head ends, were installed around 1900. Other alterations were undertaken at this time as a result of faculty granted to the Rector and churchwardens dated 15th June 1899.

Angela Matthews

My dad Ted Matthews was churchwarden here from about 1957 to 1965. He also ran the youth club. I was confirmed here in 1962 and taught Sunday School. The rector at the time was Charles Young. His wife was my Mum's friend and I have many ahppy memories of Saturdays spent in the rectory. I visited with a friend a couple of years ago but the church was locked.
