CADEBY SK40 SW CHURCH LANE (North East Side) 5/2 Church of All Saints 7.11.66 GV II* Small parish church. Late C13, with some C15 work, restored. Coursed limestone rubble with ashlar dressings, and plain tiled roof. Small west tower over nave roof, short south aisle, and chancel. Tower is timber framed and tile hung with wood traceried bell chamber lights and pyramidal roof. Victorian Decorated-style window in its west wall. South door in Victorian gabled porch. Angle buttresses to nave and aisle, which has Perpendicular windows, drop--ended hoodmoulds with corbel heads. Their tracery is of two lights, trefoiled ogee work. East window of aisle is reticulated, Decorated tracery of 3-lights. Chancel is rendered over limestone rubble in the south wall, cobble to the east, with C15 windows, renewed in east and north. North windows are also C15, two of them renewed. Inside, the tower sits within the western bay of the nave, an almost self-supporting timbered structure : thick squared corner posts have braces to tie beams and struts which tie into the outer stone walls, in a construction reminiscent more of&mx than Leicestershire. Restored in the "scrape" tradition throughout. Nave arcade of two bays, C13, with filletted cylindrical shafts and flat octagonal abaci ornamented with simple foliate emblems in relief. Roll-moulded chamfered arches. Nave roof may be Mediaeval : common rafter roof lavishly timbered with sweeping curved braces. Principal rafter or truss only marks division with chancel, Queenpost construction with raking struts springing from corbels. Another similar roof truss in the chancel indicates its different construction period. South west chancel window is contained within a chamfered embrasure with trefoiled arched head. Foiled Piscines. Heavily varnished pitchpine Victorian fittings throughout.
