St Wilfrid’s Church:
St Wilfrid’s Church, Harrogate is an Anglican parish church in the town of Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England. It is a Grade I listed building, the only such building in Harrogate. It was designed by the architect Temple Lushington Moore and is his most famous work. St Wilfrid’s is designated as a “Major Parish Church” and is the 38th largest parish church in England. The current church building was started in 1904 and the Nave and Baptistry were dedicated for use by 1908. Two sisters, Elizabeth Sophia and Jean Trotter gave large donations to fund the completion. The first gift of £10,000, allowed the nave to be completed by 1914. Temple Moore died in 1920 and a bequest from Jean Trotter in 1924 of £32,000, allowed the completion of the north and south transepts. The work was completed in 1927 by Temple Moore’s son-in-law, Leslie Moore. In 1928, the organ was installed in the North Transepts. William Gunn left £9,000, in his will of 1932 and this allowed the church hall to be built. The hall features a lamella roof, the only example of such a construction in the United Kingdom. In 1935, the generosity of Sir William Nicholson allowed the Lady Chapel to be built. While most of the work after Temple Moore’s death in 1920 had been sympathetic to his sketches, Leslie Moore’s design for the Lady Chapel was radically different from the small chapel proposed by this father-in-law.
