- The church of All Saints consists of a chancel, 19th century organ chamber and vestry, nave, north aisle, south aisle, tower at the north-west corner and south porch. The walls are mostly of rubble with stone dressings, but the eastern end of the south aisle is of ashlar, and the tower is largely of red brick. The roofs are of lead.
- The earliest work now remaining is in the south arch of the tower which was evidently the western arch of an earlier 13th century arcade. The tower itself was built at the end of the 14th century, and during the 15th century a general rebuilding of the church took place, beginning with the south aisle and south porch; the nave arcades and the north aisle were next and, finally around 1500, the chancel was rebuilt. The tower has since been partially rebuilt with brick and large buttresses were built against it, possibly in the 17th century. The chancel, nave and north aisle were restored, and the organ chamber and vestry built in 1859. The eastern end of the south aisle was rebuilt in 1861.
- In 1668 All Saints took over the registers of St John the Baptist church and All Saints church became known as All Saints & St. John's. However, it is now generally referred to just as All Saints.
