All Saints, Honington

All Saints Honington

This is a church with an interesting history. The square west tower is constructed in a limestone ashlar dated to around 1275 - 1300. The rest of the church is built in a classical style to resemble a London church of the 17
th century (circa 1680). It was built the same time as the large country house of Honington Hall which it adjoins. The painted interior has several interesting monuments including a double statue to Sir Henry and his son 1713. On the South wall there are more memorials one includes a cartouche with a baby with an elongated head and a skull dedicated to Townsend family.
