1 - Inside All Saints in approximately the 1920's when gas lamps still hung from the ceiling

2 - A Wedding at All Saints which I've included here because it shows my Dad's Roof Fund thermometer from the 1970's on the Church wall!

3 - All Saints Lych Gate taken off a Speke Messenger of the 1920's

4 - The pulpit decorated for Harvest in the 1920's. Notice the gas lamps hanging outside the organ loft and by the windows.

5 - Another Harvest service

6 - An almost empty graveyard surrounded All Saints in this early aerial photograph

7 & 8 - Snow in April 2008 around our Notice Board in Church of England colours. Someone who visited recently remarked that whoever put the notice board right in front of the church should be shot! I didn't like to say I was one of those people.... Sadly we weren't given much choice by English Heritage and the people who decide on these things!

9 - The plaque which marks the burial place of the ashes of All Saints Second Minister, Rev Patterson and his wife which are buried under the Altar step.

10 - This plaque marks the burial place of the ashes of Miss Adelaide Watt, last owner of Speke Hall and Patron of All Saints which are buried under the Altar step. The step was added in the 1960 because the stones and the writing on them was becoming worn down but nobody thought to photograph them before they covered them over...!

11 - Have you ever squeezed up the bell tower at All Saints? It’s very small and dark…

12, 13 & 14 -  We have 3 bells here. Yes, they all look the same but they sound different!

15 - If you prop a ladder on top of the bell frame  (NOT recommended) you can get a bit higher…

16 - …but nowhere near the top!

17 - View from the first floor.

18 - The organ which is still played for special services.

19 - The pulpit, rarely used these days as it gives the impression of a supposed superiority.  It remains empty except for dogs waiting for Mum to finish

20 - A similar photo to the first one this page, taken almost 100 years later.
