All Saints is one of five churches of our benefice and now part of the Ingleborough team Ministry established in 2014.   All Saints' church stands in the village of Burton in Lonsdale.  We hold joint services along with the Methodists twice a month.

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 have completed a full restoration of our Spire after being awarded a large grant from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Fund.  Our parishioners worked hard all year round raising the remainder of the finance needed - making the restoration a true community project.  The spire can be seen for miles around and if you are driving or walking in the area you will appreciate the beauty of this important landmark from many different viewpoints.

We run a Stay and Play on Thursday mornings for the under fives and parents.  Guests are always welcome at any of our activities and services.
