Photo and description
Parish Church of St. Peter in Leeds - an old church in the city of Leeds UK. Since Leeds does not have an Anglican Cathedral, St Peter's Church is the city's main church.
References to the first Christian church built on this site date back to the 7th century. The church was overhauled twice, after a fire in the XIV century and in the XIX century. The new church was consecrated in 1841 and at the time of its construction was the largest newly built church in England since the construction of St. Paul's Cathedral in London by Sir Christopher Wren.
The church was built of cut stone in the English Gothic style of the late XIV century (the period of transition from decorated to perpendicular Gothic). The church is cruciform in plan. The tower is 40 meters high. It is located in the center of the north aisle, underneath is the main entrance. The tower has four tiers of different heights, with corner buttresses passing into turrets with leafy ornamentation and spiers. The tower clock is made in Leeds. The stained glass windows were made in 1846, there are 13 bells on the bell tower.
The church has an excellent organ to listen to every Friday except August and two weeks at Christmas.
