All Saint’s Church is situated on the hill on the southern end of the village. The tiny 18th century pulpit has the familiar archway carvings, a contrast to the Victorian readers desk in the chancel, in the form of a fierce, lifesize eagle. Mortlock though it originally had a secular use. On the chancel wall hangs a table of matrimonial laws, which all churches had at one time.
