All Saints church has a 2* listing, dating from early 14th century, although a church is first mentioned in 1220 Metriculous of Bishop Hugh of Wells. The church today is largely as it would have originally appeared. William Pevsner’s ‘Buildings of England’ states that it is very unusual, being “a church of one build”, the only major addition being the raising of the rooflines in 1720’s by 60 cm Medleys of medieval stained glass fragments area located in the north and south chancel side windows and the east window is by Kempe, 1901.

There are 14th century sedilia in the chancel and a piscina in the nave south wall, evidence of a former chapel in this area. More recently George III royal coat of arms has been conserved and hung in the nave. A wall text with biblical passage from the period of the William Tyndale translation of the New Testament, 1534, has also been exposed and conserved.

There is a monthly Communion service and other occasional services. There are kitchen and toilet facilities.
