Did you know? : In 2011 All Saints ringers rang 100 different methods for The Ringing World's 100 for RW100 challenge.
Over the years the church and its tower have inspired pictures by local artists, including those shown here.
The first drawing by Douglas Thompson shows the tower looking from Rose Street, and was used as the masthead for tower publicity during the Celebrating Community project.
The second picture, a water colour in 2000 is by Thelma Cooper, a friend of one of the ringers. Prints of it were sold to raise funds for Celebrating Community. It shows the tower and church from the northeast in the churchyard. This was before the tower was rendered in 2005, hence the brown colour of th puddingstone.
The third drawing, by C H Bagnoli, dates from the late 19th century and was in the possession of the late Edna Goatley in 2009. It shows the tower seen from the gardens behind Rose Street, looking over the roofs of the houses in Wiltshire Road.
The fourth picture, a water colour in 2020, is by Angela Lazda, a ringer at All Saints. Like the first picture it shows the tower looking between the houses at the narrow end of Rose Street. It also shows the pale colour of the tower after being rendered in 2005.
