History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: 12th century corbel, 13th century font
Around 1050 King Edward the Confessor invited large numbers of Normas to settle in England. One of these was Goda, Countess of Boulogne, the king's sister. Goda was granted estates at Hazleton. We do not know if Goda herself had a church built here, but the earliest features of the current building are from the 12th century, some 100 years after her death.
The 13th century font is very nice indeed, with trefoil-headed panels on each face. There is only one notable memorial inside the church; on the wall near the pulpit is a mural tablet to Eleanor Minchin, who died in 1826 at the age of 32, leaving 4 infant children. The inscription rather poignantly says 'How dearly she was loved and how deeply lamented, this marble can not describe'.
All Saints is usually open daylight hours.
