Black & White image7th September 1981. View of St. Edward's Parish Church in Brown Lane, showing the fine reredos and rood screen. The church was built between 1903 and 1904 to designs by G.F. Bodley R.A., F.S.A. of London. The cost of the church was met by the Hon. Mrs. Meynell Ingram of Temple Newsam. By 1906 numbers had increased within the population of the new parish to 4,000.

A report in a newspaper, (The Yorkshire Post - 15.09.1981), hinted that the reredos would be transferred to a church in Manchester after undergoing essential preservation treatment by the Department of the Environment.
