    Default Church of St Andrews/(St Costas) Church, Huddersfield - Jan 2019


    Visited as the second site on mine and @Mooksters first Northern Road Trip of the year. We had failed several sites that day, and the day was coming to a rather murky and rainy end; but before we plumbed the hotel in for the night; we went to this short, sweet and rather destroyed church; the lone survivor of its time, sitting on its lonesome behind a Costa Coffee Drive Through and opposite a Travelodge Hotel.

    As we did a quick shoot of the inside; we could hear afternoon shoppers stopping by for their takeout coffee and cake fix making their orders over the drive through intercom. We even enjoyed a couple of cold drinks inside the shop after we came out of the church right next door!

    The building was put to tender in March 1869 with the stone-laying ceremony taking place on 21st July.

    The church, provided 550 sittings at a cost of 4,167 and was built of stone from the local Crosland Hill quarries.

    Initially the Clerk of Works was Mr Jonathan Parsons;subsequently succeeded by Mr Phillips. Consecration took place on 10th August 1880.

    The church was built by a local architect and protected by local laws from demolition and has remained empty since 2004
