The Church Building
All Saints’ Church is well worth visiting for its beautiful design and friendly services. It is the centre for Christian worship in Denstone and is also an historically important building in the development of the village.
The church was founded by Sir Percival Heywood, who employed George Edward Street to design it. Street was a great architect associated with the “Gothic revival”, ranking alongside Pugin and Butterfield. All Saints was Street’s favourite Church, and is regarded as one of his finest works. Its corner stone was laid in 1860 and the church was completed in 1862.
For a more detailed history, a leaflet is available from All Saints’ Church on request. And will soon be available via this website.
There is a Commonwealth war Grave for Colonel BERTRAM CHARLES PERCIVAL HEYWOOD. For details click here
