Morley St Peter
The two Morley churches may be physically different to each other, but they share one annoying characteristic: they are both kept locked without keyholders. This is a shame, because St Peter is exactly the kind of church that I would normally like. Judging by the exterior, I imagined a unique character formed by the events of centuries, a touchstone to the long generations of the parish. I would have loved to sit inside it for a while, but it was not to be.
As it is, I am told that there are a couple of interesting memorials, and some good modern glass by the King workshop in the east window depicting the Madonna and Child. You can just about make out how good it is from the exterior, and this only increases the frustration. I'm young enough to hope that the policy will change, there will be new churchwardens and I may come back this way in twenty or thirty years time to find it open.
