All Saints’ has served as a village church since the 14th Century and was built on the site of a Saxon church recorded in the Little Domesday Book. The church has some finely carved pews featuring iconic animals and figures and a notable Victorian stained glass east window.
In the 18th Century, the painter Gainsborough was summoned to paint a portrait of a rich local businessman, Joshua Grigsby, who had built for himself a grand house at Drinkstone Park. American servicemen stationed at a local airfield used Drinkstone Park during the conflict, but the house was demolished just after the war, having fallen prey to death watch beetle.
The project will help fund the conservation of a number of windows and at the same time to repair and conserve their deteriorated stonework.
