Church of All Saints
TL 43 SE 16/623 21.2.67


The present church is of C13 origin but the original building may have been
of pre-conquest date. The nave which has a C13 lancet window (blocked),
is not in line with the chancel and its unusual proportions may be due to
a pre-conquest plan. The south aisle and arcade are of the early C14 with
quatrefoil piers. The west tower is of 3 stages the lower 2 stages are
early C14 and the top stage is C16, with brick quoins and an embattled parapet.
It has diagonal buttresses only on the lower stage and a C13 west window.
There are some notable fittings including a C14 screen in the chancel arch,
a C15 carved pulpit, a C14 piscina and C14 and C15 altar tombs and recesses.
in the chancel. Graded for its architectural and historic value. (RCHM
