Description:All Saint's Church dates from the thirteenth century.

The building was renovated in 1753, when the chancel was built. The east window was probably put in at this time.

The bell turret was removed in 1889, but was re-erected in the 1940s in memory of Frank Russell and John Owen Timms, two local men who lost their lives in the Second World War. The new turret was not strong enough to support the bells, which had to be removed and put onto storage until the turret was rebuilt.
