Be seated on grotesque carvings

Although restored by the Victorians between 1857-1866, All Saints still contains stone carvings and a chancel arch from Norman times. The fifteenth-century benches have beautiful carvings - look for the back panel filled with grotesque creatures, some with human heads.
