Event information

Church open 2019 Friday 13 September 10am to 4pm and Sunday 15 September 1pm to 5pm; guided tours and refreshments available.

The firm of Morris & Co had an over 20 year association with All Saints,creating stained glass windows and the painted roof. The east window was one of the firm's early works and contains a stunning range of intense colours. Some of the designs later used by Morris in his wallpapers & fabrics can be seen in the window.

The west window, known as the 'fiery furness' is regarded as one of the greatest windows designed by Burne-Jones, it glows in the afternoon light. The work of six preRaphaelite artists can be seen in the church.

The painted roof has a number of different intriguing designs by Morris, all hand painted by a local guilder. The roof gives the church a very medieval feel.

This event is hosted by All Saints

All Saints is a typical village parish church, but it can be found in many guide books, as it is nationally and internationally famous for its stained glass windows by William Morris.
