Leeds Minster (interior)
At the time of its consecration, in 1841, Leeds Parish Church was the largest new church to be built in England since Sir Christopher Wren's St Paul's Cathedral of 1707. Built of Ashlar stone in the English Gothic style of the late 14th century the church is 180 feet long and 86 feet wide, with its tower rising to a height of 139 feet. The east end of the church was altered between 1870 and 1880; physically it has been little changed since then, and the church is now designated as a grade I listed building (LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings) by English Heritage.

Leeds Parish Church was given the status of Minster on 2 September 2012, to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year. The actual date of the service to mark the conferring of Minster status was chosen to coincide with the original dedication of Leeds Parish Church on 2 September, 1841 (LinkExternal link BBC Leeds and West Yorkshire).
