All Saints Church was built as a replacement for St George's Church further west. The foundation stone was laid in May 1914 and the building was completed in 1917. Although originally designed to have a tower and two rood screens, none of which were constructed, the church keeps largely to the original plan with the exception of the interior. Over the years there have been several alterations, including the installation of pews, a memorial east window and an organ.
Music and Worship
All Saints hosts a number of concerts throughout the year, with professional, amateur and school musicians performing.
We have a fine organ, recently restored. It is used for Sunday services once a month (we have no full time organist) and for weddings and funerals.
