Leeds Parish Church of St. Peter, Sanctuary, Postcard (City Centre)
Black & White imageUndated. View of the sanctuary within the Leeds Parish Church of St. Peter, with the memorial to Reverend Walter Farquhar Hook on the left. Reverend Hook (1798-1875) was Vicar of Leeds from 1837 until 1859 when he became Dean of Chichester. The memorial was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott R.A. (who was the architect of All Souls Church in Blackman Lane, built between 1876-80, also as a memorial to the Vicar of Leeds, and Scott designed Leeds Infirmary which opened in 1869). The memorial is an altar-tomb of red veined marble. The recumbent white marble effigy of the Vicar of Leeds was the work of monumental mason, William Day Keyworth Jnr (Keyworth sculpted the four portland stone lions which have guarded Leeds Town Hall since 1867). The memorial to Reverend W.F. Hook cost £1,000.

St. Peter's Church, Arthington Lane (Arthington)
Black & White imageUndated, Early 1900s view of the Church of St. Peter on the south side of Arthington Lane. It dates from 1864 and was built in rock-faced sandstone to designs by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the Gothic style and included sittings for 307 persons, a western tower and a spire containing one bell. The building work was financed by William Sheepshanks esq. of Arthington Hall and there are many memorials within the church to members of the Sheepshanks family. The first vicar was the Reverend Thomas Sheepshanks M.A., who gifted the vicarage situated behind the church. The clock was a later addition to the tower, installed in 1910, and it was made by William Potts & Sons of Leeds. Due to dwindling numbers making up the congregation the church was forced to close in 2007, and the final service was held on Sunday 2nd September of that year. The Grade II listed building of St. Peter's was acquired in 2007 by the Christian Coptic Orthodox Church of Egypt, a church dating back to the third century.
