MEMBERS of a historic church have celebrated its restoration.
The work at Whitechapel Church, Cleckheaton, cost about £250,000.
It included a reconstruction of the bell tower to its original height, together with roof, guttering and stonework repairs and access for disabled people.
The renovation of the church – also called Ye Olde White Chapel in the North – began in 2004.
It included setbacks and rising costs.
The work was partly paid for by English Heritage and with recovered VAT from the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme.
Money also came from charitable groups including the Churches Preservation Trust, donations and fundraisers.
