All Saints, Barkby, Leicestershire

Scroll down to content

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.
