All Saints Chebsey and St Luke’ s Norton Bridge

All Saints’ Church, Chebsey is a Grade 1 listed building and seats 100 people on wooden chairs. Standing above the village on a natural mound of higher ground, the church is mostly built from reddish sandstone in the Gothic style and dates from the 12th century. The west tower dates from the 15th century, and is constructed from mostly grey with some red sandstone blocks. The external staircase turret (on the southeast corner of the tower) at Chebsey, is quite an unusual feature. Though it is very common in the churches of the South of England and especially those of Devon and Somerset yet it is rarely seen in the churches of the English Midlands and North of England.

Parts of the south wall of the church show signs of extensive repairs, mostly in red sandstone. The churchyard contains am Anglo Saxon cross shaft. Inside the church can be found late Victorian stained glass windows by Charles Eamer Kempe, and a 13th century stone coffin.

The churchyard contained the war graves of a soldier of World war 1 and an airman of World War 2.

 

Norton Bridge has a 100 year old church which also serves the community as a village hall.
