BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE CHURCH.
All Saints - Babbacombe is an ABC resolution parish under the care of the Bishop of Ebbsfleet
All Saints, Babbacombe,is a fine example of a Grade 1 Listed church designed by the distinguished Victorian architect William Butterfield. The foundation stone was laid on December 20th 1865, and consecrated on All Saints Day, 1st November 1867, by the Rt. Rev. Samuel Wilberforce - Bishop of Oxford.
William Butterfield (1814 - 1900) was a pioneer, innovator and one of the most distinguished of all Victorian architects. The design incorporates the fifty varieties of Devon marbles. The use of polychromatic marbles for the pulpit and font, demonstrate Butterfield's passion for constructional colour and ornate interiors. A visit to All Saints is essential to appreciate the splendour of William Butterfield's achievement.
Gerard Manley Hopkins,the Victorian poet, was a great admirer of William Butterfield's work, and visited All Saints in September 1867, 1874 and 1877. Hopkins described All Saints as "pure beauty of line".
