Bishop of Leeds takes advantage of Synod’s “dressing down” decision

As the new Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales prepared to enthrone its Diocesan Bishop, Nick Baines, details of his specially-designed robes were revealed. 

Having been tipped off about the likely result of the General Synod vote on Saturday which made the wearing of robes optional, Bishop Nick requested a groundbreaking new design of Episcopal apparel which he strenuously denies is based on the Liverpool FC home kit.

His mitre bears what appears to be a hitherto unseen Diocesan acronym YNWA “Yorkshire North & West Areas” – are you sure about this? Ed.

Note: Bishop Nick and the Area Bishops for the new Diocese do actually have newly-created robes which have been designed by Polly Meyell.  These can be seen on the West Yorkshire and the Dales website.
