We believe the Church did NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in the 12th century, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

Two-cell plan of nave and chancel, with north vestry and south porch, and bell turret, set on the side of a hill, within a walled enclosure, looking almost as if it has grown up out of the very limestone itself. A place to feel "at home" - almost like a house and garden, surrounded as it is today, by browsing cattle. Apparently now disused, and doesn't appear ever to have had a graveyard. Built out of local limestone, with gritstone quoins, and now a Listed Building.

The road past the church continues to Ballidon Quarry. Tilcon Laboratory and Outbuilding, and Tilcon Offices, Ballidon Quarry, are also Listed (Grade II), being sited in mid 18th century farmhouse buildings.

There is further information about All Saints Chapel - Ballidon on my other website.


Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
