All Saints or All Hallows Church was probably built in the twelfth century and was replaced in 1796 by the present building; although many at the time believed that the old building should have been restored. The old building is said to have been built on the site of a Roman Pantheon, and so may have older religious associations than any church in the city. The 1796 church is a rare British example of an elliptical church in the Renaissance style.
The church was deconsecrated in 1961, and converted to offices/auditorium in 1983-84.  The church is still open to the public and is by no means derelict. The church is currently (2010) used by the Church of Saint Willibrord with All Saints, a member of The Old Catholic Church Anglican Diocese. Following flooding damage over the 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 winters the building has been left in a state of semi-disrepair and is not able to be used as much, pending the damage being fixed, although Sunday service takes place.

Open the photograph album left to view many more pictures of the cemetery, unusual stones and epitaphs. I will add more photographs as I visit this cemetery. If you would like to add your own, please contact me, and if they are suitable, I will add them, with an acknowledgement. The album has several pages.
