LANDMARKS AT HUDDERSHELD AND WAKEFIELD; DEWSBURY CHURCH AND PAULINUS

A famous landmark at Huddersfield is the Victoria Tower (bottom left), erected on Castle Hill. Wakefield, once part of a great manor of the Saxon kings, is now chiefly concerned with wool, iron and agriculture. Its cathedral (bottom right) has only recently been raised in that rank; its crocketed spire is the tallest in Yorkshire. Dewsbury's parish church (top right) holds a precious if somewhat doubtful memory, for here is a cross that tells us in Latin that Paulinus preached here in the year 627.
