Contrary to expectation, the bishop of the new Church of England Diocese of West Yorkshire & the Dales is the Right Reverend Nick Baines, the outgoing Bishop of Bradford.

Today, Bishop Baines has been visiting each of the five areas that will make up West Yorkshire & the Dales, the biggest Diocese in the country.
