The present building
The present church originates from 1630. However, only the tower actually dates from this period; the north aisle was built in 1716, while most of the remainder dates from the rebuilding of 1780. Further alterations and additions were made in the 19th century; these included the strengthening of the tower in 1841 to accommodate a new set of bells, and a new chancel by E. W. Mountford, completed in 1900.
Today, All Saints shares its parish with the nearby church of Holy Trinity.
The interior has Robert Adam-like columns of wood, painted as marble, with a frieze and enriched cornice. Some monuments from the original church still survive in the present building; these include a brass to a soldier of King Henry V, and monuments to Susannah Powell (1620) and Alderman Henry Smith (1627).
