Yeadon - St John the Evangelist

St John the Evangelist was built in 1844. The web site of the church is here. I did not have the opportunity to go in. Looks vibrant and airy and the website is up to date!

The Commonwealth Graves commision list three graves on their website. However I just found the two.

Panoramic view of the church from the bottom of the church grounds.

This photo is from the very bottom left of the upper
