I had never been able to go inside before, but it was worthy being in. It wasn't as spectacular as I would have expected, but still beautiful!

This church has special memories as I was married there almost 50 years ago. Occasionally I return for the interest of the building, the connection with my own father's old regiment, and for my own nostalgia. Although in the centre of town, it is in a stunning setting, and inside there is so much peace and tranquillity.

Church is used as a venue for concerts as well as for worship. It's a very large building but people seem to feel at home in it and its riverside setting and rural-looking churchyard make it an attractive oasis in the town. It has a good choir and as a music venue has a pleasant atmosphere and good acoustics -... More

I attended All Saints as a child and returned on a Sunday to attend a church service. The memories came flooding back as if I were 12 years old again. Kind and generous people greeted us and insisted we stay for coffee and cookies afterward. Thank you for soothing my soul.

Definitely worth seeing. A beautiful, old and very large church steeped in history. A very welcoming and informative lady was on hand to answer any questions and to greet you. Real surprising to see a large image on the wall at the back of the church that had been attacked by Cromwell's soldiers. You can still see the sword marks... More
