A Brief History


The first mention of Castleford Parish Church is in surviving sources between 1178 and 1184 when Henry ll confirms the grant by Henry de Lacy to the hospital of St Lazarus in Jerusalem, linking the town with the exotic and expressionist age of the Crusades. The benefaction failed to take place and the patronage remained with Lacy successors  Some 200 years later it was restored by John of Gaunt, the Duke of Lancaster around 1370. Another restoration took place between 1866 and 1868, the cost being met by public subscription and what was to be the last Church Rate levied on the district.
