St Giles

 

A Grade II* church situated within the Pontefract town centre conservation area, with a unique octagonal tower housing a peal of ten bells. The pillars and arches in the chancel on the north side are of Bethersden marble, possibly carved by the same masons as those who worked on Canterbury Cathedral. Often described as "the church at the heart of the town", St Giles' embarked on major internal alterations to encourage greater community use. The grant was to help with repairs to external masonry, roof drainage and glazing repairs and internal plaster finishes and panelling.
