All Saints, Chalgrave, Bedfordshire
All Saints, Chalgrave
All Saints is worth visiting mainly for its wonderful medieval wall paintings. The oldest of these paintings, to be found at the west end of the aisles - probably dates to the late 13th century. It is thought to depict the Twelve Apostles, with each apostle shown life sized and set beneath a canopy.
These figures tend to be overshadowed by a profusion of later heraldic figures. Some of these figures may be in honour of the Loryng family, local lords in the late 14th century. The church contains a 14th century memorial to Sir Nigel Loryng (d. 1386), one of the founding members of the Order of the Garter and hero of the Battle of Sluys.
