Churches (204) : All Saints, Kemble

The parish church of All Saints in Kemble, Gloucestershire dates from the 12th century but may have been built on the site of an earlier Saxon church. The church has a nave, south aisle, chancel and a west tower which was built in around 1250. A spire was added to the tower in 1480.

The church was badly damaged by a lightning strike during a storm in 1823. It was completely rebuilt (apart from the tower) during the early 1870s with as much of the original fabric reused as possible, a north aisle was added at the time. The spire was restored again in 1964. The church is built from coursed and dressed limestone.
