ALL SAINTS CHURCH

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  CATHEDRAL OF THE MARSH
DESCRIPTION + /

A parish church also called 'Cathedral of the Marsh' dating to the 14th and 15th century but with construction evidence of a substantial Norman church standing on the site until circa 1380. The church was considerably restored in the 19th century.
Constructed of greenstone rubble, limestone rubble and dressings with some 17th century brick patching and lead roofs, the church comprises a western tower, nave with clerestory, aisles, south porch and chancel.
The landscape surrounding the church is particaularly interesting, with medieval settlement remains to the east and west and a medieval moated site and settlement further to the south. In addition, there appears to be a distincive land boundary around the church grounds which the current road follows and on an earlier ordnance survey map (GIS Epoch 1843-1893) a major boundary continues around the east and north side forming a square unit in which the church, pond and Hall Farmhouse, previously called The Hall (LB195647), are situated. The evidence is suggestive of a medieval manorial complex which may be earlier in date than the current church and Hall would suggest.
