Top: Organ and choir stalls, the organ is set in a shallow recess which has the following carved on it "Everything That Hath Breath Praise The Lord".

Bottom: The interior of the church looking towards the altar in the centre.
The pulpit is on the left, the organ is out of view on the right but the glimpse of the pipes indicates it's position on the other side of the wall.
The abundance of greenery suggests the church has been decorated for a seasonal service.
E593

Undated: Interior views of the chapel include the organ which was bought for £418 and was installed in 1891.

It had previously been in a chapel in Peterborough Cathedral.

Also a view towards the altar and the pulpit.

My parents were the caretakers of Greenhill Church it had a lovely community. All the children went to Sunday school here we were sad to leave, We lived at no 9 Over Lane next to the old graveyard. All the residents of the church side of Over Lane and Prospect street had to move at the same time the church was shut, Most of them were pensioners on Over Lane we were the only family. Everyone was rehomed in Yeadon in Council Accomadation
