All Saint's

Set in a downland valley, this delightful little church makes a charming picture with its wooden bellcote, a large house beyond, and just a few cottages nearby. Mentioned in Domesday Book, it is half Saxon and half Norman: the Saxon church had a nave and chancel but in 1170 the Normans removed the latter and extended the church eastwards, doubling its original length and adding a tiny new chancel. Evidence of both periods is clearly seen in the walls, windows and doorways of the building. Sir Thomas Sopwi…

In the 11th century a Benedictine priory was set up and in 1296 the monks were allowed to fortify the site to protect against the Scots. In 1539 when the priory was dissolved in the Reformation the site was kept as a Royal castle and it was manned until the 20th century.

St. Lukes

St Luke’s Linch is a Grade II listed church dating from 1700-1712. The original structure was extended in 1814 to include the bell tower and changes to the north window. The current church, completed in 1880 with the tower being added two years later, has an attractive pulpit of Sienna marble and beautiful choir stalls. The font was found in the undergrowth having been discarded (at some stage) from Tuxlith Chapel (see link) and dates from the 1600's.
