Geocache Description:

magnetic nano

The previous church of Sawtry All Saints consisted of a chancel, nave, north and south transepts, north and south aisles and a western tower with a low broach spire. The tower and spire had been rebuilt in 1683, at which time, presumably, the aisles were destroyed. The chancel was rebuilt about 1810.
The chancel of c.1810 was built of large stones but had no buttresses; its roof was covered in tiles which overhung at eaves and gable, and it was ceiled inside with a flat plaster ceiling which came much below the apex of the chancel arch. The west tower of 1683 was probably built of re-used 14th century material. It had no buttresses except at the north-east and south-east corners, where parts of the west wall of the nave and of the former aisles had been re-modelled as large buttresses. Various coffin slabs from Sawtry Abbey were placed in the church in 1850, with more which were already there, but reversed in the pavement. This church was pulled down in 1879, when a replacement was built.
The modern church consists of a chancel, organ chamber and vestry on the north, nave, and north aisle. The walls are of coursed rubble with stone-dressings, and the roofs are covered with tile. The bell came from the old church and is probably 14th century in date.
