Designated a National Historic Landmark, All Saints Church (1863-64) was designed by prominent English Gothic architect Richard Upjohn, who also designed the rectory (1869-70), and parish house (1865-66). The site also includes a late 19th-century carriage house/barn, a c. 1900 wagon, a tiered cemetery on the side of the hill, and a varied system of retaining walls, including a 1920s wall that surrounds a good portion of the 6-acre property. It remains one of the best preserved sites of its kind.
The Trust grant would help fund the replacement of the slate roof on the church and rectory, including installation of flashing and gutters.
