St Peter’s is a medieval church with some good late medieval stained glass. We are the only church serving the village of Woolley, just off the M1 motorway at junction 38 and 7 miles south of Wakefield. We are part of the Diocese of Leeds and the Church of England.  Recently we became a United Benefice of Chapelthorpe and Woolley with West Bretton.
