Beautifully maintained but not open
Apr 2021 • Friends
We walked past on the May bank holiday weekend, the exterior is well maintained & surrounded by some beautiful well established trees affording great respite from the heat, or for those with little ones to have a picnic, unfortunately it wasn’t open so didn’t get to look around, but if the inside is anything like the outside I’m sure it’ll be worth a visit!

Beautiful church and extremely welcoming people
Feb 2020 • Friends
My friend and our two babies met in Northallerton for a catch up and a look around the town. We had heard the church was lovely so popped in. There had been a soup lunch and the people invited us to join, offering us soup, bread, a hot drink and biscuits. They were sooo welcoming and didn't rush us out when my friends baby needed a mega long feed! It was such a lovely thing to do, particularly as the weather was horrendous outside
A church should be a sanctuary to all and this one definitely is.

A warm welcome from friendly local ladies
Feb 2020 • Family
My friend and our babies popped in for a quick look around the church architecture and were immediately welcomed to sit down and enjoy free homemade soup and bread (served each Monday). The ladies within the church kitchen made us feel so at home and chatted to us whilst offering tea and biscuits. There were baby changing facilities and the interior of the church is well worth a look.

An historic church
Jul 2019 • Friends
On a very wet day in Northallerton the church beckoned us and we were glad we did go in. There is a considerable amount of history (from 1150 onwards) to see and it is worth following the guide to see the main features. The ‘mouseman’ Robert Thompson was responsible for part of the 19th century refurbishment and he left 21 of his famous mice carved into various wooden items throughout the church. It will keep children as well as adults busy trying to spot them all!

A different experience

This church under the vicarage of Fiona is not what I expected of the church but she is wonderful, friendly and up to date.

This is an attractive and interesting church.
Aug 2018 • Solo
All Saints Church is at the far end of the High Street and is well worth a visit. Like most churches, the building and contents span several centuries, so there is much to discover and admire. I won’t go into too much detail, but the highlights for me were:

The stone font is 17th century.

The wooden war memorial situated on the wall behind the font is by Thompson of Kilburn, and features the trademark mouse. And if you like finding Thompson “mice”, there is another on the altar rails.

The aisle pillars are 12th century and the tower above the crossing is dated from 1420, the earlier one having been destroyed in 1318 when Northallerton was sacked by the Scots.

There are two chapels, and the Northern Saints Chapel contains an unusual vesica window (shaped like an oval with pointed ends top and bottom) as well as two wall mounted sections of an old 15th century screen. The Lady Chapel at the south end is more attractive and includes a fine copy of a Leal painting, as well as three early 13th century lancet windows.

And before you leave, spare a glance at the wooden ceilings which, in my view, are simply lovely.

The church provides a very good pamphlet with explanatory notes re the above and much more. There is no mention of the exterior however, and I was curious re the deep gouges in the porch stonework. They look very much like the grooves one often finds on church walls that were caused by archers sharpening their arrows on the church walls after service, and before archery practice, but someone might have an alternative explanation.

Summer Concerts were out standing.
Sep 2017
I was on duty here the first Wednesday of July August and September. The three concerts that were performed on each of these days were absolutely amazing. I did see a lot of people call in from coach trips but sadly did not have enough time to stay to the end of the concert. But those that did attend were well rewarded.
