Great Steeping, All Saints Church
Great Steeping, All Saints Church
There are two All Saints churches in Great Steeping; this is the 'Old' church, built in 1748 from an earlier medieval church. Despite its medieval origins, the church is very Georgian in feel, with round-headed multi-paned windows set in wall of local greensand and bricks.
Its a very simple building; essentially just a nave topped with a wooden bell turret at the west end. There is some evidence of an early chancel, but this seems to have been destroyed, possibly when the church was rebuilt in the 18th century. The church is set amid marshland, surrounded by a medieval field system. All Saints is no longer used for regular worship and is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
