Church. Probably early C13 with tower of early C14 and restorations of 1827-28
and 1860-62. Large blocks of dressed red sandstone, probably from the nearby
Roman Wall; graduated green slate roof with coped gables and cross finial. 3
storey square west tower, 5 bay nave/chancel. Fortified tower has walls 1.3
metres thick, with slit windows and chamfered plinth, rebuilt above string
course before 1790, with battlemented parapet of 1827 and corner pinnacles of
1828: square bell chamber openings, existed before 1790. Nave/chancel has
buttressed walls with pointed lancets. Recessed C19 east window, suggests an
infilled arch of the demolished chancel. C19 porch and vestry cover original
north and south entrances: porch has stone slate roof with coped gable and
cross finials: original entrance has round arch with 2 continuous chamfers and
hood mould projecting to either side of porch. Interior: C19 vaulted pine
ceiling. C19 pews have panels of carved Gothic tracery with lectern and pulpit
of similar details. White marble wall plaques to members of the Fawcett and
Farrer families of Scaleby Castle and Scaleby Hall, all early C19. 3 early C20
stained glass windows. Bowl and stem font is dated 1707 with inscription MH,
NB, WB, CG, CHURCH WARDENS. Free standing inscribed Roman Altar, probably from
Birdoswald, has been reused in C14 with carvings on back and side of clerics
(heads missing). Interior of round arch east entrance to tower has draw-bar
hole. There is a bench mark on the south-west corner of the tower. See, Mrs J
Palmer, Guide Book to All Saints Church Scaleby, 1972.
