1: St Oswalds Church is on the left.
The Rectory dates from 1601 when Rev. Robert More decided to build a home for himself.
It is thought that he used stone and other building materials from the ruins of a Manor House previously on the site, this had been the seat of the DeWardes, Lords of the Manor of Guiseley.
  Canon Howson undertook renovation of the Rectory and St Oswalds Church during his time as Rector 1906-1934.

A message on the reverse of the print reads:
"Best Wishes to Joan and Albert for Christmas 1979"

6 & 7: A drawing of Guiseley Rectory with historical information.
In addition, it was restored by Canon Howson at his own expense early in his time as Rector of Guiseey 1906 - 1933.
He allowed the Rectory gardens to be used as a location for the St Oswald's Day pageants which he instigated.
The building was sold in 1978 for £76,000 and converted into apartments.
A new Rectory was built in the old Rectory gardens facing onto the Green.
 
8: This was the old Guiseley Rectory, built in 1601, seen here from the garden.

Carlo,

Looking at the Guiseley Rectory Pictures I am reminded that I was christened by Arch Deacon Lowe in mid October 1931. My Birth certificate is signed by Mr Reynard the registrar. The same signature is on my maternal grandfathers birth certificate in June 1866!

Did Mr Reynard ever retire?
