|Type of record:||Building|
|Name:||All Saints' Church, Woodton|
This church has a 12th century round tower and stands within a pleasantly walled churchyard. The nave and chancel are combined as one and are of medieval date, although the present exterior owes much to the restorations of 1878-79. The Perpendicular aisle roof was restored in 1966 and is notable for its fine carved spandrels. The bells of the church date to 1641 and 1722 but are hung from a 15th century frame. Both the frame and the bells have been earmarked for repair. Other fittings include a Jacobean pulpit and a simple 13th century carved stone font.
