Halifax Minster

  • Church Type:
  • Address: Halifax Minster

The church is surrounded by the legacy of the Industrial Revolution built largely on the woollen trade, inside the ceiling panels are adorned with coats of arms of the first 30 vicars of the church, prominent local families and the twelve apostles of Israel. Fragments of medieval glass survive in the Clerestory windows but is the east window which illuminates the church, its design that took first prize in the Great Exhibition of 1851. Hidden throughout the church are mason’s marks etc and the trademark of ‘Mousey’ Thompson on chairs in the Duke’s Chapel.
