Church of All Saints


A late C12 or early C13 church, virtually rebuilt circa 1300 with C14 north aisle and later additions. Stone with tile roof. Nave with aisles, chancel and Perpendicular south-west tower. Fine arch-braced roofs. North aisle elaborately remodelled in 1851 as a family chapel of the Earls of Harrowby. Well restored by W.D Caröe in 1923 and later.

Font dated 1669. Jacobean pulpit with tester. Communion rail and family pews in chancel of Jacobean type. Numerous good monuments mainly to the Erdeswick family, including four incised alabaster slabs of circa 1600; large mural monument with recumbent effigy and those of kneeling wives to Samson Erdeswick, 1603, designed by himself in 1601; mural monument to George Digby, 1675. Graded for architectural interest, including that of the interior features.
