All Hallows church, Clixby

Grade II* listed

The church has been redundant since 1973, and is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.

The church is all that remains of a larger building, namely the 13th century chancel of the original church. It is thought that the original church once seated 128 people.
Due to the decline of the village, the church was neglected and the nave was in a ruinous state and demolished in 1727.
The outline of the chancel arch is still visible.
The south wall has the usual sedilia and there is a piscina in the sanctuary, both are from the 14th C.
The font dates from the 15th century and was bought from Low Toynton, and has arcades with figures of the Saints. The pews have also been rescued from another church.
The west porch was built by Hodgson Fowler in the late 19th century, incorporating the 13th century west door.

The sanctuary floor has Minton tiles, and is there are several Ledger slabs, one is a 14th century memorial to Robert Blanchard and is carved with a cross and chalice.

There is no stained-glass.
