Beautiful Britain - Congregational Baptist Church, Chapeltown, Leeds by 


A digital painting, using Bob Ross in DAP together with Gimp for colour and lighting, of the Chapeltown Union Church the Congregational Baptists built in 1887, on the site of a former chapel.

Chapeltown is a suburb of north-east Leeds, in West Yorkshire, England and has it’s foundations in the 19th century.

The original photograph is PD from wikimedia and the information is derived from wikipedia.

From pasture land work began in Chapeltown in 1856 to make it a new town for the wealthy of Leeds. In just one decade, however, this idea was altered in favour of building the new town further away from the city and lower value housing was built instead.

Since then the community has drifted from predominently Christian to Jewish to muslim until now it is the centre of the British African-Caribbean community.

This building has followed the changes in population and from a Christian Union Chapel, it became a Synagogue, a social club, a Sikh Temple is now out of use.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:
