All Saints Church Development Project

By David Tingley

All Saints church has been standing on its present site since the 13th century. Its imposing tower and spire standing at 116ft  would certainly have made a big impression when villagers at the time caught sight of this. All Saints has become an iconic symbol of our picture postcard village, standing proud at the top of the High Street. However, 2013 is set to be a milestone in the building’s history as the church embarks on a major development project.
