THE CHURCH of ALL SAINTS

BARRINGTON

The clunch church stands at the east end of the 22 acre village green. Although there is evidence of an earlier 12th century building, it mostly dates from the 13th and 14th centuries with medieval roof, pews and south door. The Barnack stone font is thought to be a relic of an earlier Saxon church on the site.

Also of interest is the 16th century parish chest, 17th century bier, fascinating corbels of local people, the staircase to an earlier rood screen, the fine Jacobean pulpit and the late 15th century Bendyshe chapel off the north aisle with its reredos by Sir Ninian Comper. The vestry off the south aisle replaces a pre-reformation chantry. The west tower contains six bells. The chancel was restored in Victorian times when its present furnishings were installed.

Barrington village has one of the largest village greens in Britain. The Church is situated at the east end of the green and the lovely thatched Royal Oak public House is situated at the other end of the green.

All Saints' Church has stood in Barrington since the 12th century and is a grade 1 listed building. We have just completed a major conservation project.

The church is open daily during daylight hours. The churchyard is open at all reasonable times.
