The Roman Catholic Bishop of Leeds  laid the foundation-stone yesterday of a Roman Catholic church in the mining village of Denaby Main. There was a large assembly.

The site for the church is the gift of Mr. Montagu.

The cost of the building is estimated at £5,000. It is to accommodate about 500 worshippers.
