The Parish Church of All Saints

All Saints is an ancient structure with a tower crowned by a lofty steeple which was struck by lightning in July 1834.  The chancel was rebuilt in 1840 when the church was greatly improved.  The chantry contains an antique triple window.  There are several monuments among which is that of a Knight Templar.
