All Saints church Lullington

Grade I listed.

The church dates from 11th Century with a south aisle from circa 1280 and chancel if circa 1340.
The tower and south porch are mid 15th C. There are no transepts.
There is a Norman north door with carved carvings and tympanum (featuring two monsters devouring the Tree of life) under a triangular hood mould, with a figure seated beneath. The capitals have beast like figures, although the decoration is rather weathered. The south door is also Norman but much simpler. There is a mass dial on the south wall.

The tower is central, and there is an elaborate Norman western arch to the nave with three orders of columns. There are good carvings of mythical animals.
The tower is of three stages with an embattled parapet. The upper part is Perpendicular.

The Norman font is a highly decorated tub type with text around the diameter, intersecting arcades of double pillars, and carved man and animal faces at the top, probably representing a Tree of Life.

The church was restored in 1862 by Wyatt.

There is a small organ and several stained glass windows.
