History of All Saints Church, Cambridge

Listed Building:

The tower is an important Cambridge landmark and one of the tallest structures in the city. The north side to Jesus Lane is the show front. The church is wholly in an early C14 Decorated style, and is the first use by Bodley of the English Decorated, which subsequently became his preferred style.

It has been considered one of the finest Victorian churches ever built.

General information about this church can be found on Wikipedia.
