What an amazing and impressive building it was I can remember going there as a child and I always thought it very severe and scary.My Gran's family (Towers and Longs) all from Yeadon were mainly all Methodists and attended. My Mum used to tell me about having to sit through performances of Handel's Messiah when she was a child and how she forever after disliked hearing it!
