About Our Churches
Allhallows has one church in regular use – All Saints – but also has the ruins of an earlier church.
Outward appearance is perpendicular but inside there is a remarkable nave vaulted roof, entirely foreign to English Gothic architecture, which is unique to this country.
The site of the church has had some Christian significance for more than a thousand years, and preserved from that time are a fragment of an Anglian (Saxon) cross-shaft (built into the first floor of the tower) and two parts of a Viking hogback tombstone, now in the porch.
St Margaret’s Church sits in a beautiful elevated location, overlooking the Embleton Valley and Bassenthwaite Lake.
