St Mary, Elland: east window, resurrection panel
The central panel of the east window SE1021 : St Mary, Elland: east window shows Christ stepping out of his tomb and trampling down the Roman guard. The theology may be dubious to modern viewers, but the medieval glass painting is remarkable in its detail - top left of Christ's head is his empty cross with the two thieves still hanging on theirs, for example.
St Mary the Virgin, Elland

An ancient parish church towards the lower end of the present town centre, and overlooking the Calder valley. It is thought that the same masons who built Kirkstall Abbey in 1170 built the first church in Elland circa 1180, although most of the present building is 15th century. It is notable in particular for its medieval east window, the building is grade 1 listed (list entry 1184393).
