All Souls was completed in 1880 as a memorial to Walter Farquhar Hook, the Vicar of Leeds who was responsible and famous for the growth of Anglicanism in the city. George Gilbert Scott, perhaps the greatest ecclesiastical architect of the time, designed All Souls on a grand scale, having in mind the nave of one of the great Yorkshire abbeys. He died two days after completing his plans, his design being then carried out by his son, John Oldrid Scott.
On top of the characteristic circular village vault is the originally late Roman Andreas church. The current building was rebuilt in 1676 after the old church was largely destroyed by fire a few years earlier.
The current church is the remnant of an originally late Romanesque building. Traces of the southern crossarm can still be found in the outer façade. In the north wall are bricked-up lists of Romanesque windows. The interior has beautiful wall and vault paintings from the 13th and 15th centuries: the Fall, John the Baptist and St. Lawrence.
A very fine Grade I listed church built around 1370 in water meadows, it was originally moated.
The modest sized Grade II* church of the Assumption is at least 12th century in origin.
The church of Ginnum dates from the twelfth century. The building now serves as a studio for visual artists. To this end, the original furniture has been removed. In the choir a red-colored mural can be seen.
The 18th century church in Augsbuurt is mainly visited because of the special pulpit and the beautiful mourning signs. It is a simple brick building with a tower that was built later, in 1917.
After a major restoration, the 19th century church of Baaium looks beautiful again. The church can be considered very special, both inside and out; there is, among other things, a baptismal font from the fifteenth century.
Alone in the fens between Bardeny and Wragby, this humble church has been used for worship for almost 150 years.
Between Blauwhuis and IJlst, along the ancient winding dikes that protected the people in former times against the Middelzee, is the church of Westhem. It lies on a mound and is dedicated to Saint Bartholomew.
