Pontefract All Saints Church

There has been a church here or close by since Anglo Saxon times, and it even featured in the Domesday Book survey in the year 1086. The present church was built around the 1300s, but only a few parts of that church now remain. In 1536 when Henry the 8th announced dissolution it sparked an uprising known as the Pilgrimage of Grace, many supporters went to Pontefract to establish themselves in the nearby castle.
