Horbury Old Church

 

 Horbury Old Church, before 1790

Horbury Old Church, or Horbury Chapel as I believe it should more correctly be called was probably built around 1090, by Earl Warenne of the manor of Wakefield.
Walkers, 'Wakefield its history & people', describes this chapel as;
Being in the Norman style of architecture, consisting of a west tower, an aisleless nave and a small chancel.
