All Saints Church Carleton Rode

All Saints Day is remembered in the old Celtic Calendar B.C. and is based on the agricultural and pastoral year beginning on 1st November.

Description

The chancel of the present church dates back to the 12th century and was consecrated by the Bishop around 1307 but construction took a further 200 years to complete.

The 19th century topping- off of the tower was so well done that it appears as if a huge church has been built against a small tower. In fact, the top collapsed in the 18th century, and has been truncated to create the church that you see today.

A sign at the back of the church, recording a now-lost inscription on the tower, remembers the alterations and monies paid for the work:
