  • Here are photographs of Churches etc. in the parish:
    • St. Mary's Church, Kirk Bramwith.
    • St. Mary's Church, Kirk Bramwith. I wondered why Bill had such problems with his photograph above and so I went to see for myself. This photo is the same view as Bill's.
    • St. Mary's Church, Kirk Bramwith. You cannot get a photo. of this church from the road for the trees (on the left of this photo). Would you rather see the trees or the church?
    • The trees at St. Mary's Church, Kirk Bramwith. Would you plant trees this close to your house? Where do you suppose the roots are going?
    • The former Wesleyan Chapel, Braithwaite, built in 1877.
