Fenton, All Saints

The church, dedicated to All Saints, lies on the western edge of the village behind Fenton Hall, former seat of the Lucas family. Access is through the front garden of the Hall. Parts of the church date from the 13th and 14th centuries and the north doorway may date from c1200, although it is blocked with red brick of a much later date. The church has been added to over the centuries in the 15th 16th and 19th. By 1970 services had not been held for a number of years but recent renovations have improved the church which re-opened in 2005. The churchyard has been cleared of most of its memorials, many of which a standing by the wall of a nearby farm building but a few do remain in situ.
