All Saints History

Dating from 1150AD

The present Church on this site dates from about 1150AD.

The siting of the church next to the River Chelmer and not near Ulting Hall suggests that the present site may have been an early Christian meeting place in Saxon times. Both upstream and downstream are the extensive flood plains of the River Chelmer. All Saints Church stands at the only place for miles where higher land slopes down to the river bank.
