Haugham, All Saints Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The interior is an almost untouched example of early Victorian Gothic Revival, with a royal coat of arms crafted in cast-iron. There are a set of Commandment Boards and richly coloured stained glass.
There was a priory founded at Haugham in the 11th century by Hugh de Abinois, the first Earl of Cheshire. The medieval church at Haugham did not appear to have any relationship with the priory.
That medieval church was replaced, starting in 1837, with the current church, which was itself declared redundant in 1981. A few memorial slabs were rescued from the medieval church, as was the font. The timber roof is particularly fine.
All Saints is no longer used for regular worship and is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
