St. Michael
Description:
2009. View shows the main doorway of St. Michael's Church, the parish church of East Ardsley, situated in Church Lane. This church was built in 1881 but the doorway which was incorporated into it is all that remains of a much older church on the site, dating back to Norman times. The old church, which had been expanded and altered over the years, had originally been a chapel in the parish of St. Mary in Woodkirk, before East Ardsley became a parish in its own right.

Comment:
I lived in East Ardsley from birth in 1958 until my marriage in 1981 and attended the church as a boy through the Sunday School. I was christened in the church and later married at St Michaels as were my paternal grand-parents - John W Braddick and Hilda Braddick (nee Green). The church doorway is also interesting in having a marker on one of the foundation stones, which is at the same height above sea level as the tip of Wakefield Cathedral, the site of the church being on one of the highest points in the area.
