"The Parish Church, dedicated to All Saints, is a handsome cruciform structure, which was all rebuilt and beautifully restored in 1848, except the tower, which rises from the centre. It is in the late decorated style with ancient and modern stained glass in the chancel windows. In the south transept is a beautiful alter tomb to John Aston and his wife, who lived at Park Hall in the 16th century, and some mural monuments of the Ashenhurst family.
The rectory is in the patronage of Lord Bagot, and incumbency of the Rev LF Bagot, MA.
There is a Wesleyan Chapel at Dodsley, and a small Primitive Methodist Chapel at Middleton Green."
