The District Church[edit]

All Saints Church in High Kelling

All Saints Church is a District Church in the Parish of Holt with High Kelling. The building was built in 1924[3] and was the chapel of Bramblewood Sanatorium which cared for the sufferers of tuberculosis. After the Sanatorium closed in 1955, the residents of High Kelling purchased the Chapel for £500[4] for their place of worship. The Chapel became licensed for worship in 1970 although it had been then in use for 15 years. In 1977 the Chapel became part of the ecclesiastical parish of Holt.
