Features of All Saints
Move your mouse over the Plan to find the "hot spots" !
The South ViewAs you approach All Saints through the South Gate you will see the impressive yew trees. The eldest tree is over 1600 years old. The other yews were planted in 1726.
The Lady Chapel
The church is a rectangular chamber with no structural divisions between the aisles and the chapels at the east end. The arcading consists of seven bays which do not extend to the east wall. The Clestory windows add greatly to the lightness of the church.
The High Altar
The screen which separates the nave from the chancel is fifteenth century, probably from the Ludlow workshop. The wainscoting, and the fan vaulting which is further ornamented by liernes, make it one of the finest screens in Wales.
The Trevor Chapel
St Catherines Chapel, is also known as the 'Trevor' chapel after the the Trevors, who lived in Trevalyn Hall, in the parish of Gresford. The memorial under the east window is of John Trevor who died in 1589. The Trevor Chapel also houses a painting commemorating the Greford Colliery disaster of 1934, when 266 men died.
