Street (the son of George Edmund Street) and A.H. Kirk. The east window and new pews were added during this time. In 1895, the south aisle was demolished and rebuilt in the Gothic revival style.In 1912, a new carved-oak reredos was added, depicting Jesus Christ and the twelve apostles.In 2013, the church received a grant from Kirklees Borough Council for £25,00 to build exterior lights to illuminate the church at night.To visit Dewsbury Minster and other attractions in Batley, use our Batley trip itinerary maker.
