Church of All Hallows

Church. Circa 1200 nave, chancel and south aisle. Perpendicular
west tower, though upper part said to be C19. North aisle rebuilt
1825, and clerestorey and south porch probably of similar date. East
window probably mid C19, perhaps a restoration. Deeply coursed
stone to tower and C19 parts, coursed rubble to south aisle and chancel.
Stone slate roof with gable copings on cut kneelers. West tower, 6-bay
nave, with north and south aisles each with porch, clerestorey , and
long chancel. The tower has a fine early English doorway, presumably
reset, with heavily moulded arch and colonnette to each side, and
large dog tooth band around the whole doorway. Above it is a large
3-light window with Perpendicular tracery. 4-light mullioned and
transomed bell chamber openings with traceried heads. Crenellated
parapet. Six 2-light clerestorey windows to north and south. Six
lancet windows to south aisle and three to south wall of chancel plus
two paired lancets. 2-light windows with tracery to north aisle.
East window of 3 large lancets.

Interior: 6-bay arcade to north and south on octagonal piers, except
north side, west end, which is round. Some capitals with stylized
leaves, some plain. Carved oak, 1st World War, commemorative screen
to tower. Large chancel arch on slender semi-circular responds.
Perpendicular panelled oak ceiling with bosses - C15. Arched braced
chancel roof. Reconstructed Saxon cross fragments, at east end of
nave, showing Christ crucified and with interlace at base. In the
chancel are 3 late C18 wall memorials to members of the Horsefall
family of Storthes Hall, all on a grey marble ground. Piscina in
south wall, and a small square, chamfered hole in the north wall,
thought to be possibly an opening into the priests room, a squint
or a lepers' window. To left of this is a low, shouldered arched
priests' doorway. Passage behind reredos with 2 reset doorways
possibly of C13. 8-sided Tulip font with elaborate cover designed
by Sir Charles Nicholson c.1930. Benches believed to be pre-
Reformation, rectangular with simple mouldings. Other benches are
Elizabethan with some carving and mouldings, one inscribed:
