Adel Church, showing graveyard (Adel)
Black & White imageUndated. Old photograph of Adel Parish Church showing the graveyard in front. The Norman church, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, is a Grade I listed building dating back to around 1150-1170. It is constructed in coursed squared gritstone. The south porch, seen centrally, is elaborately carved with beak-head and chevron designs. The corbel frieze, seen running along below the roof-line, is decorated with carvings of human faces and the heads of beasts. Alterations to the church were carried out in the 14th and 16th centuries. The architect, Robert Dennis Chantrell, who supervised the rebuild of Leeds Parish Church, designed the west gable and bellcote of Adel Church which was built between 1838 and 1839. He also restored the stone slate roof in 1843. Further renovations took place in 1879. Adel Parish Church is located off the east side of Church Lane. Photograph by Wormald of Leeds.
