Comment
The location is Towngate where people have gathered for an outdoor service on St Oswald's Day.
This was a notable occasion as it celebrated 700 years since the first Rector had been appointed to St Oswalds Church.
More than 300 children had taken part in a special service in the church, they then followed Rev. J Wrangham Hardy and choir in procession to the Guiseley Cross for the outdoor proceedings.
In this view the choir and clergy are returning to the adjacent church.
