LAST week’s guest church is the church of St Mary-le-Ghyll in Barnoldswick, and is part of the Benefice of Barnoldswick with Bracewell in the Leeds Anglican Diocese.

According to the church’s own website, not much remains of the original structure, apart from possibly a triplet window, and an early English window on the North side.

The font probably dates from that period, as does an old stone coffin alongside the porch. The arms of Kirkstall - three daggers- can be seen faintly etched on an inside wall.

“The 14th century was a period of intense church building, and at this time, the roof, formerly thatched, was probably lowered and stone-slated, as thatched roofs were usually steeply pitched. The south aisle was added at this time,” says the church website.

“The massive tower was built in the reign of Henry VIII and dated 1524 in Roman numerals, although the M for thousand has been omitted, it seems intentionally.

“It is interesting that in 1743 it is recorded that one service was held only on alternate Sundays, with Holy Communion celebrated four times a year.”

The pulpit dates from 1723 and the old bow pews are Jacobean, as is the Altar table. Interior walls at some time have been plastered, probably after the reformation, to remove traces of Roman Catholicism.

Any idea where this week’s mystery church is? Built in the 19th century, the church at the time was considered large for the place where it was built. Answers, before 8am on Monday to
