Our illustration shows the west front of the Parish Church of Goldthorpe in the South Yorkshire coal-field. Built at the behest of Lord Halifax, Goldthorpe was the first church in England to be built entirely of ferro-concrete. Famous since its foundation for lively Catholic worship, the building has recently been magnificently restored, largely through a grant made by the English Heritage Lottery Fund.
