The earliest church in Bakewell dates from Anglo Saxon times. However, there were probably Christians here long before then, very likely they were among the Roman settlers from the 2nd century onwards. Under pressure from invaders, the Christian faith largely died out, but was brought back to the Anglo Saxon kingdom of Mercia in the late 7th century by pioneering missionary bishops who built a number of 'minster' churches. Bakewell was one of these.

The church of All Saints at Londesburgh is an historian's treasure; a wonderful historic building with a plethora of intriguing artefacts and associations with the great and the good. The first record of a church was in the early 12th century, when the powerful Herbert the Chamberlain granted it to his son, William (St William of York). The most likely building date is between 1110-1130, and is seems likely that Herbert himself built the church.
