History of All Saints Weston

All Saints Church, Weston (the church on the hill)

The village of Weston is ancient and the church has been for many years at the heart of the village community. It is believed that a church building has occupied this hillside for over 800 years.

The first Vicar was Jordanus who started here in 1297, but there is a record of a church in Weston in a Bull of Pope Adrian dated 1156, however nothing remains of that early building. A later medieval church known as “All Hallows” was built in the 15th Century.

The main body of this church was demolished in 1830 leaving only the tower standing. A larger building was needed for the growing community. This new church was consecrated on the 2nd of June 1832. The Architect was John Pinch who also built St Saviour’s, Larkhall and St. Mary’s Bathwick.

By 1880 the growing parish needed more seating and the transepts and the chancel were added. This work was consecrated in 1893, and the clergy and choir vestries were added in 1909. Click here to download our brief guide to discover some of the more interesting features of our church building.
