“Come to me, all you that are weary and carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest in your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11: 28-30.

History suggests that the presence of a Church on the site goes back to the 9th Century, but the church we see today is of Saxon origin and stands near the head of the tidal estuary of the River Yar.

The late Saxon church had an aisle-less nave and some of the quoins at its north west and south west angles have survived and are visible from inside. At the end of the 12th Century, aisles with three-bay arcades were added to the Saxon nave, and chapels were created to the north and south of the original chancel. 

Further work was carried out in the mid to late 13th century to part of the chancel and a new west bay to the nave and aisles was added and the west end was started. The climax of the 13th century work included the construction of a giant external arch that projects from the west wall and is still such a dramatic feature, as you approach the church, today. 

All Saints was heavily restored in 1875-6 by W.T. Stratton which resulted in the church looking largely 19th century outside. The medieval lean-to aisles were replaced by wider ones under separate gables, and the church was enlarged eastwards.
