Long Description:
All Saints - Buckworth
Only a small portion of the 12th century building remains today. The south arcades and south aisles were built in the 13th century. Near the turn of the century (1300) the tower and spires were built, followed by the north arcade and north aisle in 1310.

Near the turn of the next century (1400) the clerestory and porch were added, and the south aisle and north wall of the north aisle were rebuilt. Major restoration was done in the 19th century, and the tower was repaired in the early 20th century. The spire was repaired for the second time in 1925 due to a lightning strike.
