Really nice church that's very open and welcoming. Has a lovely section detailing the history of the church/christianity/Minster in Dewsbury. The main church hall is nothing special most of the year but at Christmas it has a Christmas Tree Festival which, for the last 2 years, my (very) young Granddaughter has absolutely loved (and I enjoyed it too). The refectory cafe is fine and serves food at competitive prices and there usually local jams and chutney's (plus religious artefacts) available in the small shop area by reception. Toilets available too.

Lovely minster, busy roadside location. Cafe was clean and bright but the food was terrible. I ordered a jacket potatoes with butter, it came crammed in a tiny dish with no butter the potato was microwaved and bruised and hard in the centre.

Although I live in Dewsbury and walk past the Minster on a regular basis it had been 50 years since I had stepped inside the church where I was christened in and my last visit was with school many many Christmas’s ago. And was shocked to find how much unlike the the church I remember it has become, the actual service area is tiny and only occupies about a third of the church. The rest now being about the history of the parish church and how it achieved Minster status. And also one of the wings is now occupied by a lovely cafe with a nice choice of food, coffee and tea and nice and warm. It’s nice to see how the “Minster” famous for its unique “devils knell” which rings out at Xmas as adapted to the modern world. A nice visit.
