We of the West Riding

'We of the West Riding' is a short film featuring Dean Clough, Woodside, Illingworth's Talbot bend and The Shay. Exploring the daily life of a large family in Yorkshire, 'We of the West Riding' (1945) shows both their work at the textile mills and their varied leisure pursuits.
It is also scripted by the famous, Halifax born and bred Phyllis Bentley.
Note how dirty the buildings were (2 mins).
Can anyone name the church? (19 mins)
