Mirfield  Zion

The Zion Baptist Chapel around 1910. The chapel stood on this site from 1873 to 1993 when due to a dwindling congregation and large maintenance costs it was demolished.
In the field behind to the left stood Water Royd Hall, it gained notoriety and the nickname the  "Murder House" due to the dark events of May 12th 1847;  when James & Ann Wraith along with their servant girl Caroline Ellis were murdered.
Two tinkers Michael McAbe of Dewsbury & Patrick Reed of Roberttown were arrested.  Reed turned Queens evidence and was pardoned while McAbe was hanged at York in 1848.
