All Saint's Church was built in 1843 on the site of the Chapel that was there previous. It was the Lord of the Manor William Nicholson and several of the gentry who gave the land and contributions in order to develop the Church. When the stone was laid for the building of the Church a glass bottle containing coins of the realm was placed in an alcove in the stone. It was then covered with a brass plate with the names of those who had contributed and the inscription "IHS" on it. William Nicholson was said to of hoped that the sacred building "would be the means of diffusing the blessing of pure religion to generations yet unborn."

Embroidered with gold

The Church building was completed by November of the same year and consecrated by the Bishop of Chester. The nave was built of stone cased with brick in the Early English style. It had narrow lancet windows, a high pitched roof and a lightpointed belfry. The focal point was the altar which sat at the top of three steps covered by a crimson altar cloth embroidered with gold. The square font featured a floriated Greek cross, the sacred monogram, the crown of thorns, reed, spear and hammer, and the pincers and nails.

1856 developments

In 1856 the nave was extended and the Chancel was built. This was to be designated to James Nicholson and his family as their place of burial. In his will, he requested that his body "should lie in the Chancel of All Saints beside that of his wife."

James Nicholson

In 1872 James Nicholson gave a mortuary under the Churchyard. The original tap for washing bodies is still there today.

Final enhancements

And finally, in 1890 the Church was reseated throughout and a new north aisle, Baptistry, Font and Vestry were added.
