Summary Description

The present All Saints' Church was preceded by a Norman Church referred to as All Hallows which was taken down in 1890 and the building of the present Victorian Church of All Saints' commenced in 1891 to the designs of Hodgson Fowler, a leading ecclesiastical architect of his day, based in Durham. A small number of stone features from the earlier buildings were incorporated in the present structure. The opening ceremony for the new All Saints' Church took place in July 1892 and was presided over by the Archbishop of York. In recent times the Chancel was reordered and a new vestry, named after William Bentley, was added in 1981 to an extended North Aisle under the direction of R G Sims. The Church comprises of a Nave with open Porch to the South, Chancel, North Aisle, North Vestry with link block connecting to the North Aisle and a Tower & Spire standing on the West gable of the Nave. The Church stands in an extensive Churchyard, slightly elevated from the public car park & road on the North West side of the village green. A small brick-built store stands adjacent to the Vestry.
