Transcript THORNES CHURCH AND PARSONAGE, FROM THE LAWN OF JOSEPH BENNETT, ESQ. This church, dedicated to St. James, and consecrated by Edward Lord Archbishop of York, is a small structure, of the Grecian order, pleasantly situated near the village of Thornes, about half a mile south of the town of Wakefield. The foundation-stone was laid by James Milnes Gaskell, Esq., M.P. for Wenlock; and the ground upon which it stands was the gift of his father, Benjamin Gaskell, Esq., of Thornes House. The building was erected about twelve years since, at a cost of £1800. £1000 was granted by the commissioners appointed under the act for promoting the building of additional churches: the remainder was raised through the medium of private contributions and other charitable efforts. It is estimated to accommodate conveniently about 300 persons. Latterly considerable alterations have been going on in its interior: the two side-galleries have been taken down, and the pews, or stalls, have been differently constructed and arranged. In some parts of the church, I think this arrangement may be found rather inconvenient, as a slanting position will be necessary in order to obtain a sight of the clergyman. The removal of the galleries is a very decided improvement, in so far as the appearance of the building is concerned; and if the change do not diminish the extent of accommodation previously afforded, I should say it will prove well worth the expense incurred. Attached to this church is a good substantial parsonage, in the style of the fifteenth century: indeed, it is much too large a house for the incumbent of such a benefice, unless he be possessed of property independent of his clerical income. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the diocese of Ripon, and in the patronage of the vicar of Wakefield, in right of his vicarage. It has its own ecclesiastical district assigned to it,—a circumstance which enables the minister to exercise the duties connected with the pastoral office with much greater efficiency.
