More about this scene

This 14th-century church contains one of the oldest and finest brasses in England, that of Sir Robert de Bures (d1302).The 18th- century south chapel is 20 feet longer than the chancel, and contains the monument to the Jennens family, including the miser William (d1798). The tower, in ruins here, was rebuilt in 1923, and the bells were re-hung in 1925.

Memories of Acton, All Saints Church 1906

Dose anyone remember the dolls hospital on Acton hill

I visited the church in 2008 with my mom, and husband, as this is the church where her dad Albert George Blythe married her mom, Matilda Elkin. It was a beautiful church, so peaceful and quiet. We walked around and saw some family names in the cemetery. Just to finally be in the place where my grandparents were married was amazing. The Blythes were from Acton, and I'd heard of it always, so to visit there was just wonderful.
