St Oswald's Church, Guiseley
St Oswald's Church, Guiseley
This is a Norman church, of which the south arcade of four bays and the south doorway survive. Pevsner liked the south transept, with its large south window (see photograph); he considered that it was probably built between 1260 and 1275. The north arcade and tower are later, in Perpendicular style. By the late 19C the church was too small, due to the growth of the town, but the rebuilding of the nave and north aisle, and the new chancel, were not started until James Howson became Rector in 1906; they were completed by 1909.
