All Saints Church

Over elaborate Victorian restoration

Martin Nimmo

All Saints Parish Church was originally Norman but suffered from over-elaborate restoration at the hands of the Victorians. The exterior was plastered and an addition was made on the North side. The interior is less spoilt.

Much of the land to the East of the churchyard on the other side of the hill is a cemetery.

Comments about this page

I was christened here in May 1938 by the Rev Stott, the sidesman was William Baird who became my godfather. My father, Ebenezer Charles Snelling, was buried in 1964 between the wall and the tower, as is my godfather and the organist. My mother, Celia, lived on for another 42 years and was buried in the same grave in 2006.
