Situated in a beautiful location beside the Loddon,  All Saints has seen better days. Now deconsecrated all of the important items including beautiful stained glass windows and font were moved to St Mary's Hartley Wespall.

However today's church contains many traces of the site's 900 years of history one of which is that the building does not lie on a true east-west line, being slightly oriented to the south.
A severe fire in 1792 destroyed the greater part of the church, along with the neighbouring farm buildings and nothing but the bell and font survived.
A good job was made of the reconstruction on the old foundations, for, apart from the restoration of the fabric in 1901 and a full interior re-decoration in 1965 few further repairs were carried out up to the deconsecration. Recently a new roof has been installed. and it's worth a trip to see this hidden Hampshire gem.
