All Hallows Church
Broadwoodkelly Church is a Grade I Listed Building. It dates mostly from the fifteenth century (though some parts of the building are some 200 years older). Consisting of nave and south aisle, it boasts a charming 1523 original stained glass window in the north wall and a fairly massive sixteenth-century octagonal font. The whole building was extensively restored in 1869. The church organ, built by Telford & Telford of Dublin, dates from 1849 and was originally built as a house organ for Lord Thynne at Haynes Park in Bedfordshire. It is now highly regarded as an organ of its period still in its original condition.
The church is Anglican, and the tradition is middle to high church. The current pattern of services is a mixture of Holy Communion and Morning Prayer. To see details of times of services please click here
