A church at St Ives is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and it is likely that one existed on the site long before that. However of the present church, the earliest identifiable structure dates from the 12th Century. The chancel was rebuilt in the 14th Century and the rest of the church rebuilt around 1470, so the bulk of what we see to day is of 15th Century date. However if you look around carefully you can see shadows and traces of what existed before, some of the features of which are illustrated in the high resolution images available below.

It is not neccessary to point out to the visitor the church's finest things to see, as they are splendidly obvious; the painted rood screen and organ case built in 1894 would overwhelm the eye where it not for the painted statues of St. Nicholas, St. Margaret, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Lawrence, St. Stephen, St. Andrew, St. George, St. Agnes, St. Thomas of Caterbury and St. John the Baptist and althought they only date from 1897 they are affixed to the origional stone brakets of the Nave piers where similar statues once resided. However the visitor need not be blinded by things that are relatively modern, the carved oak pulpit dates from around the end of the 16th Century but its base is much older. But if you want to go back further in time head down the nave towards the west door where you will find a 13th Century octagonal carved stone font. All but four of the church's windows, and those are on the dark northeast aspect, are of fine stained glass which bathe the interior of the church with a spectrum of kalaedescopic colours when the sun shines.

All Saint's has not had much luck with its spire, it was blown down in 1741 to be rebuilt in 1748 and again in 1879 only to be demolished in 1918 as a result of an aeroplane colliding with it. So what we have to day is the total rebuild of 1924 but that does mean the tower and spire are in good order and able to carry a full peel of eight bells. The bells can be rung from the floor of the Nave with traditional ropes but they can also be all rung by one person from the belfy. To find out more about that and see how it is done look at the high resolution images avalable below.

All Saint's is a beautiful church and it is well worth a visit but when you do please be generous in the collection box because beuatiful things cost money to keep that way. Countless numbers of our forebearers have contributed to the development and maintenance of what we have to use and enjoy today, let's not be the one's to put at risk that which has existed for nearly a 1,000 years!
