All Hallows

All Hallows church is a large and beautiful building dating back at least eight centuries with a list of incumbents that can be traced back at least as far as 1230.

Kirkburton, Yorkshire

Opening times

Open during May to September, usually Tuesday afternoons and Saturdays.


Shelley Lane

The church is built of local stone with a stone slate roof, and is a Grade I listed building. There are a number of stained glass windows including the main East window and one of the finest modern stained glass art deco windows in Yorkshire by Christopher Whall. There is a beautifully decorated and gilded medieval ceiling over the nave. The pews are also ancient, with some of them being prereformation.

There are a number of 17th and 18th Century books, a 16th Century lectern and a 17th Century chalice is on loan to York Minister. Also see fragments of a Saxon cross, squint and interesting memorials. The organ is a three manual instrument originally built by Peter Connacher of Huddersfield. The bell tower contains a chiming clock and a peal of eight bells, which are rung on a regular basis by an enthusiastic team of local ringers and which regularly attracts visiting teams.

We are a friendly and welcoming Christian community located in a village setting to the south of Huddersfield. We are blessed with a beautiful old church which can seat about 440 people and which fills you with a sense of wonder when you consider how God has been worshipped in this same building for eight centuries.
