The Parish Church of St Oswald, Leathley
St Oswald's Church was built C.1100 and enlarged about 1470. The tower, which is
surmounted by a pyramidal roof, is of coursed gritstone rubble but the remainder is built of ashlar. The roof is of stone slate. The church was restored in 1869 by Mr F H Fawkes of Farnley Hall. Up to that time it had box pews and these were re-used as screens. The doorway is Anglo-Saxon and the door itself, with fine wrought-iron strap hinges, probably dates from the C12 or C13.
