All Saints

All Saints is a rare and largely unchanged example of late 19th century neo-gothic church architecture. It contains stunning frescoes by the famous Victorian church architect Sidney-Gambier Perry, and stained glass from 1909 by Ward and Hughes, the most celebrated glassmakers of their time. The church was built between 1881 and 1882, on land and with funds provided by a local resident. It was designed by the Gothic Revival architect Joseph Clarke.

The central aim of the project is not simply to repair the spire but to increase the community’s engagement with a distinctive and important piece of Victorian heritage, by raising awareness, and offering opportunities to explore the history and fabric of the building. While doing the work, All Saints plans to hold a festival, which will include commissioning a local playwright to write a play about the heritage and history of All Saints and its community.

East Barnet, Hertfordshire

St Mary’s is the oldest building in the London Borough of Barnet, and its clearly visible Norman heritage details means that despite some further development it is described by Pevsner as a ‘remarkable survival’ of that monastic period.

The churchyard has a distinct curve to it perhaps following the shape of an underlying moat and ancient meeting place. An ancient Yew tree reckoned to be between 1,000 and 2,000 years old also stands in the churchyard.
