Churchill, All Saints

The parish Church of All Saints, Churchill is situated, appropriately enough, on the east side of Church Road (B4450) in this small village. We managed to park on Church Road.

The church is in a very visible location and can be seen from miles away. The churchyard is not particularly big but nicely maintained and backs onto the village cricket ground. The church as rebuilt in 1837 and in very good condition. There is an entrance to the ringing room from a stone staircase on the outside north face of the tower. There is another entrance from inside that is reached by taking a wooden staircase to the balcony where there is a door into the ringing room. The balcony area is very nicely finished. The room is not very big and ringing some of the bells is a little awkward. There is limited space to accomodate anyone not ringing but the balcony is just outside the door.
