A church of legends with a 'sawn off' spire...
Built of colourful orange ironstone in the fourteenth century, All Saints' is delightfully located overlooking parkland. This is a church of legends, woven around the strange 'sawn off' spire that crowns its handsome fifteenth-century tower.
Medieval screens, a curious thirteenth-century font, early nineteenth-century box pews and carved corbels of various dates, inside and out, make this a church of considerable historic interest.
Access off Croxton Road with limited parking on road. Steps up into churchyard, grass path up to church, step up into south porch and church
Disabled access information
Even floor surface within body of the church, steps up to chancel
