St Martin's Church, Brighouse
St Martin's Church, Brighouse
This church was first built in 1831-2, and had seating for 1100 people. Part of the cost was met by the government under the 'Million Act', which provided for the erection of churches in the new industrial areas. Previously the parish church was at Coley two miles away. The clock was added in 1846, most of the stained glass (which includes a north window of 1872 by Morris) was installed between 1856 and 1900, and the chancel was added in 1905. The grassed area in the foreground was occupied by back-to-back houses until these were demolished c.1970.
