Nearly ‘back to normal’
St John’s lies at the heart of Birkby, half a mile from Huddersfield town centre.
We belong to the Anglican Communion, within the Diocese of Leeds. The building was designed by William Butterfield and its construction entrusted to Joseph Kaye of Huddersfield: the foundation stone being laid in 1851 by Sir John Ramsden. It was consecrated in 1853 and it is said up to 4,000 people attended the opening.
