All Saints church, Threxton

Most probably built on the site of a Roman Villa, it is a fine example of a ‘round tower’ church. Interpretation of dates is varied, but it is widely believed that the Church dates back to the 13th century.

Extensive restoration work was carried out in about 1865, when the North Aisle was opened up, having been used as a mausoleum for the Knopwood and Barton families. This revealed original arabesque work over the arches, these having been since reproduced. The East Window, dated 1868, in memory of Thomas and Hannah Barton has glass made by Powell & Son, London. As the sun shines through this east window, the vibrant colours of the stained glass depict scenes of the Nativity, the Crucifixion and the Ascension. The North East Window has remains of medieval glass clearly showing faces and the foot of Christ.

Frost of Watton did the woodwork and carvings, all the benches being cut from one tree. Under the front pew is a shelf where it is alleged that the Squire of the village could place his hat. The font is octagonal dated about 14th century. Edward Goffe, a resident of Threxton in 1613, gave the Jacobean pulpit, reading desk and three cornered cupboard in the vestry.

Further restoration and repair work has been undertaken at later dates and more work is needed now. Fundraising is ongoing for this next restoration project. Over the years many items and donations have been gifted to the Church in memory of loved ones. Today the Church is loved and visited by many. Well attended services are held in the Church monthly (details on notice board). A warm welcome is extended to everyone.
