A church on the edge of a battlefield
In its circle of trees, overlooking the Civil War battle site of Edge Hill, this church is approached up steps from the Kineton to Southam road. It is especially lovely in late spring when the primroses are blooming in the churchyard.
The building appears long, low and massive, the result of extensions over the centuries. The eastern end of the nave is from the twelfth century, the westward extension fourteenthth, the clerestory was added in the fifteenth, the charming tower in the seventeenth and the present chancel was built about 1730, when a north transept was added over a burial vault.
The transept chapel has three windows glazed with lovely sixteenth-century Italian glass. The few monuments are of good quality.
There are occasional services held at All Saints' church and we have also had weddings here, but there is no regular service pattern.
Any planned services will be posted here as and when they are planned.
For the regular pattern of church services within the Parish please see the service rota for Fenny Compton above. Alternatively for services held in all the Dassett Magna churches please click the link below.
