Bardsey Parish Church

Details

All Hallows, Bardsey, dates from the 9th century and contains one of the best surviving Anglo-Saxon buildings in West Yorkshire. The church also houses the Bardsey Millennium Tapestry.

The core of the present church was built over a thousand years ago, more probably between 800 and 825, and consists of the lower section of the tower and parts of the central nave walls. The upper portion of the tower, excluding the parapet, are of later Saxon origin and were built during the 10th century. At this time, the church consisted of a west porch, narrow nave and tiny chancel. The period between 1100 and 1400 saw the adding, and the late widening, of a north and south aisle and the moving of a Norman doorway to its present position at the west end of the south aisle. This magnificent Norman doorway is now partly obscured by the much later addition of a porch but still clearly shows the architectural typical features of early normal construction.
