All Saints’ Church, Otley, is a Grade I listed church in the Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales.
Taken on as architect for this superb Grade I listed Norman church, built on the site of Anglo-Saxon foundations in the 11th Century and enlarged in 1241.
Carl was originally appointed to repair and refurbish the West End of the church previously converted to Parish Rooms. Building on this success, Otley PCC had a desire to implement a wider reordering scheme making the church more inclusive and capable of being a multifunctional building. Located in the town centre there were significant opportunities to make more use of the available space.
The brief for the major re-ordering was to bring the altar forward, remove the fixed pews and raised pew platforms, improve the heating of the space and provide internal porches to the north and south with improved toilets. The proposals developed retained the previous subdivision at the rear of the church and made use of the space above with additional facilities and storage space. The pews were removed and a new limecrete floor laid incorporating under floor heating. The new porches to the north and south reflect the current style of the rear alterations and retain visual symmetry and with large areas of glazing provide better views into the church.
