All Saints


Parish Profile: The church is a sandstone building in the Decorated and Perpendicular styles, consisting of chancel, nave, north aisle, and an embattled western tower, with a turret; at the north-east angle, and containing a clock and 15 bells, 8 of which are hung for ringing and the rest for chimes : the church was thoroughly restored and enlarged in the year 1862. The stone reredos is divided by shafts of Devonshire marble, into panels, the centre panel representing "The Crucifixion," executed in relief, and those on either side containing figures of St. Peter and St. Paul: the pulpit is of carved alabaster, inlaid with marble : over the chancel arch is a "Majesty," in mosaic work : the west window and others are stained.
