All Saints


This is a remarkable survivor from the 9th or 10th century, with virtually the entire nave and chancel remaining from that time. From the outside the church retains much of its Saxon feel, with the exception of the top half of the tower and the tall spire, which are both from the 14th century. The best Saxon architecture can be seen inside, where the arches are made of re-used Roman tiles. At one time the church was even bigger than it is now, and must have been a very important centre in Saxon times. The origins of the church go back to a monastery that was founded here in 675.
