FIFTEENTH CENTURY CHURCHES AT BRADFORD AND HALIFAX

FIFTEENTH CENTURY CHURCHES AT BRADFORD AND HALIFAX

Save for a fine oak roof the church of S. Peter at Bradford (bottom) has no distinctive architectural feature, though it is a fair example of the Perpendicular style, dating from the late fifteenth century, and now ranks as a cathedral. The parish church of S. John at Halifax (top) dates from the same period. Among its monuments is one to Bishop Ferrer, a native of the town, who was martyred in 1555. The famous astronomer, Sir William Herschel, was for some time organist of this church.
