Christ Church, Appleton-le-Moors.

Christ Church, Appleton-le-Moors, a fine piece of architecture and well worth a visit.

A lot of work was put into this fine looking building and the interior is quite a surprise for a 'village' church!

 

The capitals of the piers and the font are intricately and most decoratively carved.

 

Some of the stained glass windows inserted in the pretty tracery.

 

Looking down the nave to the chancel and altar in the apse.

 

Details of chancel and altar.
