All Souls church, Halifax
Apart from the ancient parish church (now Minster), All Souls, Haley Hill is probably the most significant ecclesiastical building in Halifax. Built in 1856-58 to the designs of Sir George Gilbert Scott, in the neo-gothic style popular at the time, it is regarded as one of his finest works. Of particular note are the 236ft high spire (the second tallest in West Yorkshre after Wakefield Cathedral) and stained glass by Clayton and Bell.

Now listed grade 1 (list entry 1314027), it was formally closed for regular worship in 1979. From 1983 to 1988 it was leased to a local preservation trust. The Redundant Churches Fund (now the Churches Conservation Trust) later became responsible for care and maintenance of the building and its contents, and it is open to visitors by arrangement and for heritage open days.
