A few hundred yards from Aston Lodge, stands the Church of All Saints. It is interesting in that it contains every style of medieval building from Anglo Saxon to Perp. The Saxon work consists of masonry at the west end of the north aisle. There is some Saxon carving which is probably the remains of an ancient cross.The aisles are late 13th century and have arcades of three bays with short circular piers. The arcade and the chancel arch are Early English. The lower part of the tower is Norman, completed in the Perp period with battlements when a clerestory added to the nave.

The church possess a rare bassoon used in the church orchestra before the age of the organ. There is a monument consisting of an alabaster tomb chest with effigies of a man and wife clasping hands, she with a small dog lying at her feet, and on the side are angels bearing shields.
