  • All Saints Church, Wrington

Other Information

  • With Early English foundations, All Saints' was remodelled during the 15th century with the West Tower added to it. The tower has strong corner buttresses and steps back at four stages with an upper stage provided by the pinnacles that boost its height to 35 metres turning a relatively short tower into something more graceful.
  • These proportions, legend has it, even inspired Sir Charles Barry when he designed the Victoria Tower for the British Houses of Parliament. Barry had become familiar with All Saints' after he had added a Gothic revival reredos to the church in 1832.
