The church is a Grade II listed building with an interesting and unusual history having been built originally as an Anglican church. The pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows in the church were designed mainly by Edward Burne-Jones with contributions from Ford Madox Brown and William Morris, and constitute one of the best collections of stained-glass from the William Morris Company in the North of England.

Appeal for Help
Many Thanks for all your help. Sean now has the funds he needs to install the flooring in his home. Please read his message below.
I have been genuinely blown away by the generosity of everyone. I can't explain what a huge difference will be made by having a suitable, level floor, that will allow me to have effortless access in and out of different rooms. Having easy access to the bathroom might have obvious benefits, but being able to take a body hoist into the living room will allow me to be hoisted to a sofa, to sit with my family and enjoy a film together. More generally, the flooring itself is specifically suitable for wheelchairs, is easy to sanitise, and has a 25 year guarantee.
While it is, without question, the perfect flooring, it would simply not be possible for me to have fitted without the unbelievable kindness of so many of you.
Some people have helped a little, and some people have helped a lot. I am in awe of everyone.
It is at times like this that I realise how inadequate words alone are.
There are not enough words to thank people. I will be forever grateful, and humbled by everyone's kind thoughts and selflessness.
