All Saints, West Parley, Dorset


The parish church of All Saints is a very small Norman building of stone with traces of Saxon; it consists of chancel, nave, north porch, and a western turret, containing one bell: at the east of the church, beneath a circular stone, was buried the heart of the Lady of Lydlinch, who endowed the church, but on the rebuilding of the chancel in 1896 the urn containing the heart was removed from under the stone and placed on the top of it, where it now stands.

Church Records

The parish register dates from the year 1715. The original register books are now deposited with the Dorset Archives Service, but have been digitised by and made available on their site (subscription required).
