All Saints - Turvey

Completed a restoration and a new chancel of this church between 1852-4 at the sole cost of Charles Longuet Higgins (1807-85) of Turvey Abbey who was organist between 1854-85. As was said of it in 1958, ‘[it is] a euphemism to call [it] a vigorous example of his mature style; more suitable to some rich inner London suburb than a village church, it is saved by impeccable craftsmanship and a Collyweston roof’. (Betjeman, J., ed., Collins Guide to English Parish Churches, 1958, p. 84).
