A SHORT HISTORY OF THE CHURCH

 

All Saints Church built by Dame Rhoda Elton and Sir Arthur Hallam Elton, who endowed it, was consecrated on 1st November 1860.The architect, CE Giles of Taunton, designed a simple cruciform structure with chancel, nave, north and south transepts, and a tower and spire over the crossing.Superbly sited at the foot of Court Hill in a secluded and tranquil valley, the church clock a landmark, and the peal of its bells a familiar sound throughout the parish.The church is simple in ground plan but astonishingly rich in imagery.There are examples of the work of James Powell, William Wailes, John Hardman, Clayton and Bell, Heaton Butler and Bayne, Hardman, Sir Edmund Elton, Sir John Ninian Comper.(If you would like more information on the history and works of the church please contact the Parish Office).
