All Saints' Church

All Saints' Church

This handsome square-towered church lies at the edge of the picturesque village of Aldwincle near the river Nene - the pinnacled and carved 15th-century tower dominates the surrounding countryside.

The elegant Medieval interior is almost cavernous in feel with few furnishings, offering a rare chance to see its beautiful limestone arcades and arches up close.

The 17th-century poet John Dryden was born nearby and baptised in the church - his grandfather was the rector.

Look out for strange carved birds, beasts and other creatures on the exterior.

The Chambre chantry chapel of 1489 is also of exceptional quality.
