THE Bishop of Wakefield has visited the Huddersfield firm which clothes him and his fellow clergy.
The Rt Rev Stephen Platten spent two days touring all the parishes in the Huddersfield deanery.
The tour was part of his programme of getting to know the Wakefield diocese, which he took over in February after moving to the area with wife Rosslie and sons Aidan and Gregory, who are training for the clergy.
Dr Platten was Dean of Norwich until taking over from the Rt Rev Nigel McCulloch, now Bishop of Manchester.
Dr Platten was consecrated on May 1 and has been getting to know his new diocese, which takes in Huddersfield, Halifax and the Calder Valley, Dewsbury and Barnsley.
During his Huddersfield visit, he toured schools, as well as visiting the university, Greenhead College, the Royal Infirmary and the police headquarters on Castlegate.
Dr Platten also met leaders of other faiths, as well as with Anglican churchwardens and religious leaders in the parishes.
He also visited Singletons Mill in Milnsbridge and Brook Taverner at St Andrew's Road in Huddersfield.
Dr Platten chose fabric from Brook Taverner when he was getting a new cassock made after moving to his new job.
He did not realise until the material had been ordered that it was from a local firm.
To finish his Huddersfield tour, Dr Platten was shown round Brook Taverner by managing director Ben Jones.
