All Saints' Church, Brockhampton

All Saints' Church, Brockhampton

This special one-off church lies in the centre of the village and is widely recognised as one of the most important Arts & Crafts buildings of the early 20th century.  It was described by the architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner as **“*one of the most impressive and convincing churches of its date in any country*“**. It is an active church lying in a magnificent setting in the countryside.

All Saints’ was designed and built by the renowned architect William Lethaby, one of the leading lights of the Arts & Crafts Movement, and was completed in 1902. The building is Grade I listed in recognition of it’s architectural importance.

The church was commissioned and privately funded by Alice Foster, who lived at nearby Brockhampton Court. The Country Estate House had been purchased and restored, along with the 1500 acre estate, by Alice’s parents, Ebenezer and Julia Jordan of Boston, Massachusetts, as a wedding present for Alice and her husband, Arthur Foster. Alice commissioned the building of All Saints’ in memory of her parents.
