Easington, All Saints Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Unusual Early English free standing piscina
In the south wall of the chancel is a stained glass window containing the heraldic arms of the Duchy of Lancaster, inserted to mark the 600th anniversary of the landing of Henry Bolingbroke, Duke of Lancaster, and soon to become Henry IV, at Ravenspur in 1399.
On a pillar at the south east end of the nave is an intriguing piece of pre-Norman grafitti depicting a Viking longboat. Nearby in the Lady Chapel is a very nice 17th century monument to John and Joan Overton.
The most famous feature of All Saints is the Easington Imp, a deliciously wicked little carved figure set in the splay of the northernmost column capital of the tower arch.
