All Saints’ is a beautiful early 13th Century Grade II* Parish Church which is treasured by this tiny community of only 220 residents. Built with local materials, fieldstone, clunch, brick and some limestone dressings, it was at one time thatched but is now tiled. The core of the Nave dates from early 13th Century and exhibits strikingly leaning arches (Pevsner) and boasts a re-built oak trimmed vaulted ceiling, all coupled with 14th Century Transepts, Side Chapel and Aisles. It is difficult to do justice to the ancient and unspoiled interior which appears frozen in time; the ancient limestone font dates from the 12th Century and is therefore older than much of the building.
All Saints’ has been described by the architect as “the wobbliest church in Cambridgeshire”. This project begins to address this structural problem, with external repairs & weatherproofing, repairs to movement cracks in Tower walls & buttresses, Nave, Transepts, Chancel, S Porch and windows. The project will also involve a community led programme of Crack & Movement Monitoring with Cambridge University Engineering Department.
