Geocache Description:

A small camo tub.

  • The church of All Saints consists of a chancel, nave, north aisle, south chapel, west tower and south porch. The walls are of pebble and stone rubble with stone dressings, and the roofs are covered with tiles and lead.
  • The church is not not mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086, and the north arcade of the nave, dated to around 1250, appears to be the earliest work which remains. However, the fact that the chancel is some half a century later seems to point to an earlier church on the site, although no vestige of it now exists. The south chapel was added early in the 14th century and, towards the end of this century, the north aisle was rebuilt.
  • The tower and spire were built around 1400, but the stair-turret at its south-east angle was added a little later. The rood-stairs were built in the 15th century. The porch was built, or rebuilt, in 1657 and apparently some work was done to the chancel in 1689. In 1724, the "steeple and Bell-loft" were in need of much repair, and in 1748 the Archdeacon recorded 'the whole church very bad and nasty'.
  • A new floor, considerably raised, was put down in 1880 and the steeple was pointed in 1884. The church was restored in 1901-3 when most of the walls were under-pinned, a new buttress built onto the south side of the chancel and the porch rebuilt. The spire was pointed in 1906 and the lead on the aisle roofs was recast in 1908.
