•The church of All Saints consists of a chancel, nave, north aisle, south aisle, west tower and spire, and south porch. The walls are of rubble with stone dressings and the roofs are covered with tiles and lead.
•The church is mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086, but the earliest parts of the present church are the 12th century eastern angles of what was probably an aisle-less nave. The south arcades and south aisle were built towards the end of the 13th century; the tower and spire around 1300, and the chancel, north arcade and north aisle about 1310. The south aisle and north wall of the north aisle were rebuilt around 1400, and the clearstory and porch were added about the same time.
•The church was restored in 1862 when it was reroofed, and the spire in 1884. The tower was repaired in 1908 and the spire was repaired again in 1925 after being struck by lightning.

“If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication.
