5/45 Church of All Saints 6.2.68 G.V. I Parish Church. C12 and C13 with later alterations; restored in 1848. Coursed, squared rubble with buttressing to east and west end. Graduated slate roofs (chancel lower) with stone copings and C17 apex finials; gabled bellcote to west end. 2 cell plan with former west tower now opened up to form part of aisleless nave; original nave string-course visible above gabled C18 south porch. C12 south door has single roll-moulding to semicircular head with rosette decoration to hoodmould. One jamb shaft survives. Each capital has a chip-carved abacus with a low-relief figure to the side; the left hand capital has scallop decoration, the right-hand one is moulded (possibly recut in C13). Partly blocked north nave door is similar with cushion capitals and billet ornament to hoodmould, but lacking both jamb shafts; 2 contemporary carved stones are set in the wall above, one depicts 2 knights jousting and the other bears a badly weathered inscription. On south side, single C18 window with semicircular head to left of porch and 2 similar to right, all diagonally leaded. Narrower chancel has square-headed C14/C15 window and 2 lancets, of which the second has had its sill raised to accommodate a square-headed C17 doorway; single C12 slit window, near east end in both north and south walls. 3-light east window is largely C19 under C14 pointed hoodmould. At west end, dogtooth ornamented trefoil heads to single-light windows on either side of central buttress originally formed a C13/C14 quatrefoil panel. Internally, plain semicircular C17 chancel arch has C19 traceried screen infill. Hemispherical font on square pedestal with chamfered base and capital has conical, ribbed, wooden cover initialled and dated T.G. W.H. 1687. Fastened to wall on east side of door is wooden poor box with dated inscription (now partly painted out) "1634 The pour mans box and churchwardens seat". Some re-used C17 panelling at west end with gallery above. Various commemorative wooden panels on nave walls give details of benefactors; an C18 memorial stone fastened externally to the south wall of the chancel records the gifts of James Hanson and his wife to the village school. A badly weathered C14 tomb effigy is set in the south wall of the nave to the left of the porch.
