Kingweston old church

Before demolition the medieval church of All Saints had a chancel with choir door, nave with north aisle or transept and side altar belonging to the Dickinsons, porch and west embattled tower 45 ft high. The building had 12th-century fabric, including a south door and a font, which were reused in the new building in 1851—4. A commission to inquire into the defects of the chancel in 1410 on behalf of the rector may have resulted in a remodelling with square-headed windows.
