“up a steep hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

Great looking church from the bottom of the hill, worth the climb up to explore. Decked out for the xmas celebrations, looking really good and worth a look if visiting Bakewell

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

His church is well worth a visit, it is very beautiful. There is a cafe here or you can go across the road to the Old Hall where you can also find refreshment. Please note that the photograph shown i sod St George's church on Heapham Road not All Saints which is a much older building.

“An interesting piece of history.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Visited on a dark and wet November afternoon. The lighting at the East end of the church was poor which made it difficult to read the information boards. However the church was interesting and the details of how the church developed over the centuries was very informative. There is a useful guidebook with good colour photos for £2 and so we bought one to read at our leisure. It was a refreshing change to find a church open - unfortunately so many these days are forced to remain locked.
There is a tea shop in the church which is open on Thursday and Friday from 11am to 3pm but we were too late to visit, although it was recommended to us by friends.

“Great example of a Georgian church”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Great example of a Georgian church, very unusual and different from the usual medieval churches in this country. Worth a visit to see the boxed in pews and large imposing balcony.

“From your 'labours' rest !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

A delightful little gem of a parish church.
Fortunately it was open for inspection - on a Monday morning.
There be much old carved stonework to admire - from the moment you enter the porch.
Inside, while it be in no way grand - it be fine. Dotted throughout the building are small glazed information panels highlighting the main features and other less obvious ones. A small potted history can also be read on panels along the west front walls.
Guidebooks are readily available as well as other literature - just inside the building. There being no staff around much of the time - means they put their trust in your honesty - boxes for payments and donations are nearby.
Unfortunately, on the day of our visit - the 'heavens' were open ! Alas, the roof of the chancel might just as well have been - as evidenced by the five bowls / buckets place in front of the choir seats ! Hope our contribution (£) helps.

Although only a short walk from the town centre - it be an uphill 'trek' - a 'labour' of love for some of us !
Someone could write a hymn about it... "for all the saints, who from their labours rest..." !
