The Parish Church of All Saints

On the River Bourne, or Laverstock Brook as it is sometimes called, stands All Saints Church. The nave arcades are formed in Chilmark stone alternating with green Hurdcott stone of which Old Sarum was built.  The most interesting feature of the church is the array of portrait sculpture displayed by a series of corbels carrying the roof timbers.
