View of St Andrew's Church in the Yorkshire village and parish of Kildwick. The village is situated on a hill along the road from Keighley to Skipton. The vicarage was within the patronage of Christ Church, Oxford. The National Gazetteer of 1868 states, "the church, dedicated to St. Andrew, is of great antiquity, and has a square tower containing six bells. The oak roof is much admired". Kildwick Hall, the local manor house, can also be seen in the drawing, perched on the top of a hill above the village.
