The church of All Saints is a small and ancient building of brick, flint and rubble, in the Norman style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and an embattled western tower of red brick containing 5 bells; the nave and chancel are separated by a wall of great thickness, pierced by three arches of rude and irregular masonry, the central arch being the loftiest: in 1876 the church was restored and reseated and the south porch rebuilt, chiefly at the cost of the Rev. Canon A. H. Bridges M.A. rector of Beddington (d. 1891): the font is octangular and is supported by a cylindrical shaft: there is a memorial in the church to John Angier, a former rector, d. 28th February, 1731.
