The present church in Sheepy Magna was rebuilt in 1778 and stands on the site of a much earlier building. There is documentary evidence to suggest that the earlier church probably predated 1150. When the church was rebuilt it appears that the outline plan was close to the original building. The North aisle and a porch were added in 1859. Amongst the treasures of All Saints; the jewels must be the Burne-Jones and Kempe stained glass windows.
