|||Adel Church, Chancel Arch, East Window, Interior (Adel)
View shows the impressive Chancel Arch in Adel Church. The doorway is made up of three arches with the innermost one decorated with chevrons. Moving outwards, the centre arch has raised rectangular panels. The outer arch is, however, by far the most impressive. Thirty seven carved heads adorn the arch, each one different. The faces pictured are either cannibals, gentlemen, animals or multi-headed monsters. Through the arch is the altar. On the east wall are three paintings surrounding the window. The paintings by Dutch artist Van der Bank were given to the church by the Rector William Jackson in 1745. The window in the centre was installed in 1681 and hand painted by Henry Giles of York. The window contains the lion and the unicorn with the coats of arms of King Charles II, Henry Athington, William Breary and Thomas Kirke.

Postcard view of the Seven Arches Aqueduct, which shows a postmark of 1926 on the back. The aqueduct was built in 1837 to carry the water supply from Eccup Reservoir over Adel Beck on its way to the city centre. It was only in use for 24 years before it became inadequate for the needs of the city but it remained in place and became a popular tourist spot.

Postcard view of the Seven Arches Aqueduct, built in 1837 to carry the water supply from Eccup Reservoir over Adel Beck on its way to the city centre. After 24 years it became inadequate to meet the needs of the city and was abandoned, but it remained in place and became a popular tourist spot in the middle of Adel Woods.

View of the Seven Arches Aqueduct in Adel Woods. This was built to carry water from the Eccup Reservoir to the City Centre, at the point where the underground pipes and tunnels crossed Adel Beck.
