HERITAGE RATING: Heritage Rating  ?

Saltfleetby, All Saints Church

A striking church standing amid marshlands, All Saints is notable for its slender west tower, which leans quite perceptibly - perhaps not as striking as the leaning tower in Pisa, but still, quite noticeable!

The church was bult in the Norman period, but most of the current building dates to the 13th and 15th centuries, when the tower and most of the windows were added. The interior has a very nice 15th century wooden rood screen and two pulpits - one medieval or Tudor, the other a carved Jacobean affair. The interior is remarkably open and spacious, with only a few lonely pews to clutter the space.

All Saints is no longer used for regular worship and is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, who generally keep it open to visitors.
