Bakewell, All Saints

Bakewell, All Saints

A gem of the diocese and a church building that bears witness to worship and witness from its Anglo-Saxon heritage (with stones and two churchyard crosses to prove it) through the ages to today. Many visitors come to soak up the history, to see the ancient treasures and to stand in ancient coffins. But in doing so, they leave commenting on finding and enjoying the peace and presence of God. But All Saints is not a museum, it testifies to a living and loving community and a mission to the Town this house and community of God has sought to serve since 940 AD.

Come and experience the past mixing and complementing the present and future- you won't be disappointed and you will be assured a warm welcome!

Bakewell Heritage Open Weekend  takes place annually the second weekend in September.  Bakewell Well Dressings begin each year on the last weekend in June with the blessing on the last Sunday in June (the wells are in place for 10 days).

Refreshments are available in church Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 10.30 am until 3.00 pm.  If you would like a guided tour of the church, or if you require specific refreshments, please contact the church to make arrangements.

Please note the main entrance to the church is on the south side of the building nearest South Church Street. Disabled access is to be found on the north side of the church.  There is some on-road parking near the church, but especially during the daytime this is very limited. The nearest public car park is just a few minutes' walk from the church, and can be found just off Granby Road in the centre of Bakewell. Visitors should note, however, that it is a short but steep walk up the hill to the church.
