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 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.
There has been a building on the site since 1230, when Simon de Tynton was presented by William de Lisures to be the first Rector.
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.
All Saints is by far the oldest church in Wigan but when it was founded and when the Christian religion was first established in Wigan is unknown. The earliest possible mention of a church at Wigan occurs in the Domesday Survey of 1086.
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.
The village of Nunney is situated at the east end of the Mendip Hills close to the town of Frome in Somerset. At the heart of the village is the Grade I Listed church which sits close by and overlooks the medieval moated castle.
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 first noticeable feature about All Saints is its position in the town. You see this church does not face east.
Set in a lovely rural hamlet on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, grade I listed All Saints is a gem of a church, with a wonderful chancel and its connections with Italy.
