A Yorkshire Weekend - Haworth 3/6

This is the West Lane Baptist Church at the top end of the main street through Haworth.  It is quite old and the following was gleaned from the internet regarding its building,

The church was Erected by voluntary Contribution

And vested in Trustees for the USE of

The Baptist interest. A.D. 1752 And Enlarged

in the year 1775 by the same means under

The Auspice of the ever Memorable the late

Rev. James Hartley; who through the

Divine blessing raised an interest here:

And preached the gospel in this place

27 years.

I wanted to go inside as the door was open but it looked as though a meeting, perhaps of the Deacons, was in progress so I remained outside.

Nice one, Brian.

I can't help wondering if the opened door and gate is to allow folks to wander in or sinners to dash out...
Brian Walbey: (Smile) In the old days I suspect Baptist Ministers used to cast out the sinners very strongly Ray.
A no nonsense chapel Brian. They have great charm
Brian Walbey: I thought it was a typical chapel of the times it was built Bill.

Lovely shot Brian. My part of the world was/is littered with this sort of structure too
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. It is so nice and square to look at, there are many more about as you say.
It looks very heavy in style, but often northern buildings are.
Brian Walbey: It is very solidly built Chad, as they say, it stands four-square to all weathers.

Fine old church but it was the shadow work that attracted my eye....bit delusional after a very long day at work and a scoth
Brian Walbey: I hadn't noticed that gate shadow Tony, I should have done a shot of that as well.
Quite a heavy structure Brian. I like the light and the shadow play!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I still had that lovely light that we had in the morning where last weeks images came from.

I like this Brian.
Love the crop and it's really sharp toosmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, there is more on the image but it worked better with a tight crop like this.
They sure do appear in all shapes and sizes Brian.The bricks look quite large in this shot. Very nice.
Brian Walbey: Good old Yorkshire stone i presume Ron, but quite an attractive building.

A different looking church
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed vintage, thanks for your comment.
Looks interesting, especially with that open door. I like the shadow of the gate.
Brian Walbey: I would have liked to go inside really Sheila, and I didn't notic ethe gate shadow at all before Tony mentioned it.
They have made this look very inviting and homely.
Brian Walbey: It looked very nice, lovely warm coloured stone Linda, I wish I could have gone in.
Nice shot Brian. It's got a peaceful, sunny summer afternoon feel.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet. This was the afternoon of the morning in Hebden Bridge, (see last week), it was a lovely September day.

I really love the stonework here. As usual with yoiur images, you inspire me to go and see these for myself.
Brian Walbey: Haworth was teeming with visitors Alan, because of the Bronte connection, but certainly, in nice weather it is very pleasant, plus of course the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway
