A visit with Stroud U3A Church History and Architecture Group

All Saints’ Church, Kemble, was rebuilt in the 1800s after a lightening strike damaged much of the building. It dates from the 12th and 13th centuries, but there was a Saxon church before.

13th century coffin lids were used in the tower
