In Old Kirkheaton

Many years ago J. E. Morris, the topographer, remarked of Kirkheaton, in one of his books on Yorkshire, that though it was "not wholly uninfluenced by the neighbourhood of Huddersfield," the village "still retains features of rusticity." This still holds good, as we see in this sketch made in Shop Lane. Like Almondbury, Kirkheaton was an ancient and an important parish, but Kirkheaton's old parish church was seriously damaged by fire about seventy years ago.
