All Saints, Liddington, Wiltshire, England



In December 2000 members of All Saints, Lyddington (or Liddington as the road signs now spell it), held an open day in order to raise funds towards the bell tower repairs.  We decided to go along and use this opportunity to introduce ourselves and ask permission to take some photographs to put on this website, even though it was the middle of winter and the light wasn't really good enough for taking photographs.

It was worth the trip!  On display were the original Parish Registers along with other documents such as the church accounts, wills and charts, all on loan from the County Records Office (then at Trowbridge).

Everyone was very welcoming, and even though the church had been locked, it was opened for us to go inside to take some photographs.  The church warden showed us around, and even played a couple of tunes of the old barrell organ - thought to be one of only six left in the country.  The light faded all too soon, but fortunately this mainly only affected the photographs of the stained glass windows.

Our thanks go to all those people who organised this event - to amateur genealogists like us it was thrilling to see such a wealth of history.  We hope the fund raising side was successful too.

At the time of our visit we did not have a digital camera so many of the photographs here were actually taken with a video camera and are of poor quality.  Now we have a digital camera we have been able to go back and re-take many of the outside shots but unfortunately the church has always been locked; we do hope to gain entry and take better photographs.

The church is a Grade I listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the  British Listed Buildings  website.  More information about Liddington can be found at the  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.
