All Saints, Sandon

All Saints, Sandon

All Saints is an interesting church to visit. The massive brick buttresses on the tower were added in the 17th century as I assume that it was in danger of collapse. Inside, I found a parish cook book for sale (these often have very good recipes in them) and some mugs and post cards for sale. There is an area for children and a display of their work. 14 people had put entries into the visitors book this year. ‘Saints and Pilgrims’ was on display as well.

There are bats in this church and a small display told me that these are Pipestrelles, Brown Long Eared, Serotine’s and Natterer’s. It is good to see these endangered species made a feature of.

The church is beautifully kept and worth seeing. Their is a poignant memorial to a fire fighter who died whilst trying to rescue someone from a fire in a block of flats.
