All Hallows church, grade I listed, is a focal point in the pretty village of Harthill. The exterior has wonderful examples of architecture between the 12th and 16th centuries and inside can be seen exquisite Italian wooden carvings, a large chancel with marble floors, beautiful stained glass windows and the tomb of the 1st Duke of Leeds. The large peaceful churchyard contains many ancient monuments and the 17th century Old Schoolroom is adjacent.
All Saints is a typical village parish church, but it can be found in many guide books, as it is nationally and internationally famous for its stained glass windows by William Morris. These windows, installed over a period of 28 years, tell a story about the involvement of the Pre Raphaelite painters as people and the development of stained glass as a church art form.
This pretty church church stands on a hill overlooking idyllic countryside. The first church here dates from the 14th century, but the earliest written record is from 1474, when it appears to have been a chapel of ease or possibly a domestic chapel for the Fittons of Siddington Hall. The chapel was timber framed, but much of the timberwork was pulled down in the 18th century to be replaced by brick.
A rather unassuming village church on the outside but containing a wealth of interest and heritage within its walls. But there also lies a hidden story of murder and intrigue. Come along and view the striking memorial statues of Sir Thomas Vyner and his son, and then learn about the terrible tragedy that fell on this family.
All Saints Church has been a focus of Hereford life for over 800 years. Its dramatic twisted spire dominates the skyline, and the medieval interior is an inspired meeting of the sacred and the secular: we aim to serve the human need for physical and social as well as spiritual nourishment.
Goulceby is a delightful village nestling in the valleys of the Lincolnshire Wolds. On the Viking Way long distant footpath, All Saints is a welcomed shelter in inclement weather. An unassuming grade II listed parish church, All Saints was rebuilt in 1908 reusing medieval fragments. Although simple in style and size it is however tenderly cared for.
All Saints, was originally built in the 12th and 13th century, when the population of the Wolds was considerably greater. As the population declined the building was gradually reduced in size and its exterior and interior walls show evidence of a lost north aisle, a west tower and the truncation of the chancel.
Following the wooded sign that points down a green lane, you emerge at the entrance to a field and the most spectacular view of All Saints church and the Lincolnshire Wolds hills, it is quite breathtaking.
A small church set in the hamlet of Greetham on one of the highest points on the Lincolnshire Wolds, with spectacular views across the rolling hillside. The church is built of greenstone with some original Norman stonework.
The church has pride of place in this historic hilltop village, making a photogenic composition with the black and white houses around it. The chancel is believed to stand on Roman foundations, and the oldest visible parts of the building are early Norman.
