St John The Evangelist Redundant Church, Leeds

St John The Evangelist Redundant Church, Leeds

St John the Evangelist's Church is designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building, and is under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. The architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner refers to it as "the only church at Leeds of more than local interest". The church is built in ashlar stone, and has a grey slate roof. Its plan consists of a nave with a south aisle and a south porch, a chancel, and a west tower. The whole of the exterior of the church is embattled with pinnacles at the corners. Its architectural style is Perpendicular. On each side of the church are four-light Perpendicular windows, with five-light windows at the east ends of the nave and aisle, and at the west west end of the aisle. Most of the fittings are Jacobean in style, and have been described as the "glory" of the church. This applies particularly to the elaborately carved screen across the nave and the aisle. There is similarly detailed carving on the wall panels, the pews and the pulpit. Also in the church is a royal coat of arms and three brass chandeliers.
