All Saints is one of five churches of our benefice and now part of the Ingleborough team Ministry established in 2014. All Saints, is one of 2 churches in this village of Burton in Lonsdale, the other being the Methodist Church with whom we work closely in activities for children and young people and in weekly coffee mornings.
The church was completed in 1870, having been designed by Paley and Austin of Lancaster. It is a wonderful building and has a tall broach spire surmounting the tower containing the original six bells and frame by Warners of London. We also have interesting stained glass by Hardman of Birmingham and Shrigley and Hunt of Lancaster and a vaulted chancel roof.
The first vicar of the church was Revd Frederick Binyon, father of poet Laurence Binyon (1869-1943), whose poem ‘For the Fallen’ is used at Remembrance Day services. Some of Laurence’s poems reflect his love of this area. We have one war grave in the church yard.
We recently received a large grant from the Listed of Worship Roof Fund to have our Spire repaired so please take care in the church yard while work is taking place.
We would love to see you if you call in. Walkers and cyclists please note that when the church is open during the day we provide free self service refreshments and a place for quiet prayer and rest. We also run our Stay and Play on Thursday mornings for the under fives and parents and guests are always welcome at any of our activities and services.
