The font is octagonal and perpendicular with shields and tracery motifs, though strangely most of them upside down. (1,2,5) [SK 2038 5443] All Saints' Church. (3) During a survey in 1966, the church was recognised to be in normal use but the services are only twice monthly. No pre-medieval fabric could be identified. (4) The church falls within a scheduled area as a medieval settlement was originally located within this region. (7) Church bell is of historical significance as it dates from the 14th century. The founder remains unknown. (8)
