  • Main Description

    All Saints' church is situated upon gently rising ground at the north end of the village. Formerly known as "All Hallowes", it was rededicated at the time of the Reformation. The church consists of a nave (built in the 12th century), south aisle (13th century), chancel (14th century), a west tower and a south porch (both 19th century). The walls, which are built of chalk with stone dressings, are plastered internally and rendered externally.

    The original Norman church would have consisted of the present nave, the walls of which survive, including the north doorway, and possibly an apsidal chancel. An earlier Saxon church may have stood on this site; however, no evidence of one has been found.
