The Church Building

All Saints is a beautiful, ancient church set in the heart of our community. It is a Grade I Listed Building and, close to the south porch, is a Grade II medieval churchyard cross shaft.

Video clips on You Tube

There are two video clips on You Tube about our church, both made during an evening bell practice session [so you will hear the bells ringing out!].

The first video shows you parts of the inside of the nave and chancel [the bellringers are in the tower ringing chamber at the end of the nave].

The second video shows you the outside of the south side of the building from the tower to the east end of the chancel.
