Some of the other stained glass windows in Christ Church, Skipton, these seem filled with 'reproduction' fragments from medieval windows.

 

 

By chance, our day in Skipton, after visiting Skipton Castle, was to attend and thoroughly enjoy a concert by the Settle Orchestra

Looking down the nave of Christ Church, Skipton to the chancel as the audience were gathering for a 50th anniversary concert by the Settle Orchestra in 2017.

The pews of Christ Church, Skipton were removed and the oak floor fitted in 2009, complete with under-floor heating!

Let the performance begin! and quite an eclectic programme ensued on this lovely summer Saturday afternoon in Christ Church, Skipton.
