While driving through Barkby in Leicestershire, 2016, we stopped to look at the church, All Saints, unfortunately it was closed. So I took a few photos, as I’m not sure that we will ever past that way again. The church is a Grade 1 Listed Parish Church. Mainly late C13, with some conservative Victorian restoration work. Mainly ironstone but some use of granite in the C19 work. West tower and spire, nave with 2 aisles and clerestory, chancel. Tall tower of 4 stages, the 2nd is ashlar, and a different type of stone. Its sounds like it would be worth visit, if we are ever that way again.

Not far from me, never had a look around (went to the “Malt Shovel”) will have to investigate.
Oh please do, would love to know why its a grade 1 listed building 🙂
Love the b&w photos of the tombstones!
