All Saints' Church, Cambridge
All Saints' is a church on Jesus Lane in central Cambridge, built by the architect George Frederick Bodley. The church was constructed in stages between 1863 and 1870 and is a notable example of English Gothic Revival style with fittings in the Arts and Crafts style, it was designated Grade I listed building status in 1950. It was vested in The Churches Conservation Trust in 1981, it is open to visitors on weekdays during term-time. A mediæval church stood in Cambridge; this was known as All Saints in the Jewry, as All Saints by the Hospital. This was to distinguish it from the other All Saints Church in Cambridge at the time, All Saints by the Castle, now demolished. By the 13th century, the church was in the patronage of St Radegund's Nunnery re-established as Jesus College; the church was rebuilt several times but by the nineteenth century was deemed too small for the growing congregation, being able to accommodate less than 400 of the 1,400 people of the parish. Consisting of box pews, for which there was a levy, the poor were doubly excluded.
A plot of land in Jesus Lane was donated by Jesus College and the new building was erected at its junction with Manor Road. The old church was demolished in 1865; the churchyard of the original church is now an open space known as All Saints' Garden and contains a memorial cross designed by Basil Champneys in 1882. Although it was hoped that George Gilbert Scott would design the new church. G. F. Bodley, Scott's talented pupil, was chosen; the foundation stone was laid on 27 May 1863 and was consecrated on 30 November 1864. Between 1869 and 1871 the present tower and spire were added, with St Oswald's Church, Derbyshire, used as the model; the final ornament was a weather vane, donated by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, fixed in place by Herbert Mortimer Luckock. By the early 1970s the congregation had reduced and regular services ceased in 1973, it lay redundant for several years and fell into disrepair, during which time plans to demolish part of the building arose. These were abandoned in 1981.
Today the church is used during term time by the neighbouring theological college, Westcott House, is available to hire for secular events, such as art exhibitions and talks. The church's spire is a prominent Cambridge landmark. At around 175 feet in height it was, at its construction, the tallest building in the city, it is constructed from brick as well as Casterton stone. The church was built in an early 14th century style, it consists of a nave, large south aisle which extends to the easternmost wall, a chancel and vestry. The exterior is decorated with gargoyles and the spire has decorative lucarne openings; the church is noted for its strikingly decorated interior, much of it to designs by Bodley. Fittings by Bodley include the alabaster font, the pulpit, south aisle screen, pews and tiles; the rood screen was designed in 1904 by architect at Rattee & Kett of Cambridge. Its function was not purely liturgical as its cornice hid a large support beam, added to bolster the chancel arch from the massive weight of the spire.
The wall and ceiling decorations were applied by F. R. Leach & Sons and form complex, bold stencilled patterns throughout the church; as well as exotic floral friezes there is much use of religious symbolism such as the Sacred Monogram and the Fleur-de-lis. Around the upper walls are texts from the Book of Revelation and Psalms in the south aisle, the Beatitudes in the nave. Part of the Beatitudes have been lost due to water damage to the plaster. One of the team of artists was David Parr, known to have decorated his own house in similar style/designs, his residence is being restored and is due to open to the public in 2019. The east window was executed by Morris & Co.. It was installed in 1866 as a memorial to Lady Affleck, wife of William Whewell, master of Trinity College, Cambridge, she had lain the foundation stone of the church in 1863 and donated £1,000 to its construction. The twenty figures, over four rows, were individually designed by Burne-Jones, Ford Madox Brown and William Morris.
The diagonal lettering and oak leaf borders were designed by Philip Webb. It is most notable for its high proportion of pale, silver-tint glass, believed to be a rebellion against the dark, rich colours prevalent in stained glass of the time. In the north wall of the nave are three windows by Charles Eamer Kempe and one by Douglas Strachan installed in 1944 which features depictions of Elizabeth Fry, Josephine Butler, Edith Cavell and Mother Cecile Isherwood. There are two south aisle windows, one by Ward & Hughes and the other by Philip Webb with possible additions by F. R. Leach. High is the west end window are two angels - a sun bearer and a moon bearer designed and produced by William Morris.

Scaleby is a village and civil parish in the English county of Cumbria. It is bounded on the north by Irthington. Scaleby is located six miles north-east of the Carlisle, has a population of 349, falling to 346 at the 2011 Census. Scaleby is located close to the M6 motorway making it accessible to anyone interested in its two main attractions; the line of Hadrian's Wall passes a couple of miles south of Scaleby. Scaleby has seen a significant decrease in population since the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th Century's. In the 1821 Census report the population of Scaleby was 618 compared to 2001 when this figure was a lower 349; as Britain moved away from its traditionally agricultural industry Scaleby's population decreased simultaneously. The parish was always agriculturally based with peat once dug in the area and without the demand for primary products the village became unsustainable. In the 1831 Census report the three dominant industries in Scaleby were, it was due to this. Workers were plying their trade elsewhere.
More there has been far smaller variance in population. In the previous 20 years there had been an increase of 3% and more recently. Scaleby experienced a decline in housing between 1850 and 1930, decreasing from 122 to 87 showing again how this small villages economy struggled to get out of decline it found itself in. With the vast amounts of farmland available in the 3464 acres that spans Scaleby-East and Scaleby-West agriculture remains the number one industry for this struggling parish. Scaleby differs from many other villages, it is traditionally a parish and therefore is a district with only one church and one priest; this church is The Church of All Saints, an early 13th-century Church of England edifice with a 14th-century tower. It's a grade II listed English Heritage building with blocks of dressed red sandstone that are thought to be from the nearby Hadrian's Wall; this has many stunning features from the original round arch entrance to the white marble plaques to members of the Fawcett and Farrer families.
However, just 0.5 miles from the centre of Scaleby is Scaleby Castle. A grade I English Heritage building that isn't open to the public. Scaleby Castle boasts a long and illustrious history, in reality making it the closest building to making Scaleby well known, it is unknown when Scaleby Castle was built as it did not originate as a castle. The first recorded information about the castle is that it was granted to Richard de Talliol by Henry I at some point between 1100 and 1135. After many years of building and repairs it was declared a castle in 1367; the Castle continued to struggle with decay into the 1500s. In 1645 the Castle was damaged by parliamentary troops, it remained ruinous from 1772. The Castle still stands today although there are still signs of what the building has been through with the three stories above the basement vault remaining ruined; this remains the main attraction to Scaleby, the moat flowing right around the Castle is another key feature contributing to the stunning appearance of the castle.
Today Scaleby is home to 349 people of which 183 are 166 are females. Of the 259 members of the population 192 are economically active; this shows. Looking further into this, the number of people employed in service industries is 130, whereas there are only 66 people working in'extractive and manufacturing industries'; this shows that Scaleby is beginning to move away from its traditional agricultural society and people are working in Hotel and Catering, Real Estate and Social work. There is a greater distance travelled by the population of Scaleby; this again shows. Listed buildings in Scaleby Media related to Scaleby at Wikimedia Commons

All Saints' Church, Wittenberg
All Saints' Church referred to as Schlosskirche to distinguish it from the Stadtkirche of St. Mary's – and sometimes known as the Reformation Memorial Church – is a Lutheran church in Wittenberg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, it is the site where, according to Philip Melanchthon, the Ninety-five Theses were posted by Martin Luther in 1517, the act, called the start of the Protestant Reformation. From 1883 onwards, the church was restored as a memorial site and re-inaugurated on 31 October 1892, 375 years after Luther's posting. A first chapel dedicated All Saints was erected at the new residence of the Ascanian duke Rudolf I of Saxe-Wittenberg from about 1340. Consecrated on 6 May 1346, Rudolf subordinated his foundation to the immediate jurisdiction of the Holy See. With further donations made by his successor Duke Rudolf II, it was determined the Wittenberg main church by Pope Boniface IX in 1400; when in the late 15th century the Wettin prince Frederick III the Wise, elector of Saxony from 1486, had the former Ascanian fortress rebuilt, a new All Saints' Church was designed by the architect Conrad Pflüger and erected between 1490 and 1511 in the Late Gothic style.
Consecrated on 17 January 1503, it became part of Frederick's electoral castle or Residenzschloss called Schloss Wittenberg. Extensive furnishings by Tilman Riemenschneider, Jacopo de' Barbari, Albrecht Dürer contributed to the construction of the castle complex and the church. After in 1502 Elector Frederick III founded the University of Wittenberg and received confirmation by the papal legate Raymond Peraudi in 1507, All Saints' was incorporated to serve as a chapel to the university and it evolved into an important academic and worship center. Students were awarded their doctorates there, the reformator Philipp Melanchthon made his famous inaugural speech at the church. A tradition of burying academic dignitaries of the university at the church developed. Several notable epitaphs are preserved up to today; the main portal was used by the university staff to pin up messages and notices. This act, meant to promote a disputation on the sale of indulgences, is viewed to be a catalyst for the Protestant Reformation.
Whether the event took place or not, cannot be conclusively established. Luther sent his objections in a letter to Archbishop Albert of Mainz on the same day. Frederick the Wise was buried in the Castle Church. In the same year, the Lutheran rite was implemented; the church became the burial site of Martin Luther himself in 1546, of Philipp Melanchthon in 1560. When during the Seven Years' War the Wittenberg fortress was occupied by the Prussian Army and shelled by Imperial forces in 1760, the Castle Church was destroyed by a fire resulting from the bombardment; the blaze left only half of the foundation standing, none of the wooden portals survived. All Saints' was soon rebuilt, albeit without many priceless works of art. After Wittenberg was incorporated into the Prussian Province of Saxony, King Frederick William IV, in 1858, ordered commemorative bronze doors to be mounted onto the jambs where the original wooden ones had been located. On the doors the Theses are inscribed in their original Latin form.
The doors themselves weigh 2,200 pounds. With ornaments modelled by Friedrich Drake. On 10 November 1858, 375 years after Martin Luther's birth, the new doors were commemorated at a formal ceremony. Above the doors is a tympanum crucifixion painting that portrays Luther on the left with his German Bible translation, Philipp Melanchthon on the right, with the 1530 Augsburg Confession, the main confession of faith in the Lutheran Church, formed by Luther and Melanchthon; these doors are among the most photographed in Europe. On the occasion of the fourth centenary of Luther's birth in 1883, an extensive restoration of All Saints' in a Neo-Gothic style was begun under the supervision of the Prussian architect Friedrich Adler by his disciple Paul Ferdinand Groth; the interior redesign included the present rib vault ceiling and pilasters, as well as matronea and the apse. The 88-metre -tall steeple was rebuilt, from which one can obtain a good view of the city of Wittenberg and the surrounding countryside.
A quote, "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott", from one of Luther's hymns, encircles the tower. On 31 October 1892, 375 years after Luther posted his 95 Theses on the doors of the church, All Saints' was re-inaugurated. A Lutheran Castle Church parish was established in 1949, it evolved to a centre of the East German peace movement, when Friedrich Schorlemmer served here as a preacher from 1978 onwards. In 1983, 500 years after the birth of Luther, 12 new stained glass windows were installed in All Saints'; these honored the most important Reformation students of Luther, were created by Renate Brömme in a "timeless" style at the order of the Lutheran World Federation. A new glazed brick roof was added in 1999-2000. Today, All Saints' Church serves not only as a place of worship, but it houses the town's historical archives, is home to the Riemer-Museum, a youth hostel. In view of the five-hundredth anniversary of Luther's Theses, the building has again undergone extensive renovation; the church was festively reopened on 2 October 2016 in the presence of President Joachim Gauck and Queen Margarethe II of Denmark, who dedicated an altar frontal designed by herself.
The tombs of Martin Luther and Philip Melanchthon are located in All Saints' Church

All Saints' Church, Daresbury
All Saints' Church is in the village of Daresbury, England. It is known for its association with Lewis Carroll, commemorated in its stained glass windows depicting characters from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, it is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building. The church is an active Anglican parish church in the diocese of Chester, the archdeaconry of Chester and the deanery of Great Budworth; the author Lewis Carroll was born in All Saints' Vicarage in 1832 when his father, Charles Dodgson, was perpetual curate at the church. This was commemorated in March 2012 when the Lewis Carroll Centre, attached to the church, was opened. In the 12th century a chapelry was founded on the site of the present church as a daughter house of Norton Priory, it was a chapel of ease within the parish of Runcorn. After the Reformation the patronage of the Runcorn parish passed into the hands of Christ Church, Oxford, it is that the stone tower was built shortly after this time.
Over the years there were frequent disputes between the worshippers at Daresbury and the mother church at Runcorn relating to financial matters. Other than the tower, the church was rebuilt between 1870 and 1872 by the Lancaster architects Paley and Austin, they lengthened the church, extended the clerestory to the east, added a new north porch and vestry, at a cost of £6,000. During the restoration an old rood loft and screen were destroyed. Richards identified this as of "pure Welsh type" and its loss as "nothing short of a major calamity". Daresbury became a parish separate from Runcorn in February 1880. Families who have been associated with the church over the centuries are those of Greenall, Chadwick, Milner and Okell; the tower was restored in 1872 by Sir Gilbert Greenall. The church is built in red sandstone with a slate roof; the architectural style of the body of the church is Perpendicular. The plan of the church consists of a five-bay nave with north and south aisles, a tower at the west at end of the nave, entrances opposite each other in the north and south aisles.
The tower has corner is crenellated. On its top is a weather vane in the shape of a fish; the west window is plain with four lights and the belfry windows are plain with two lights. The date 1110 is carved on the south side, it is thought that this date was 1550 but that the number had weathered and it was mistaken by restorers. At the east end of the south aisle is the Daniell Chapel; the chapel had been called the Chadwick Chapel but its name was changed to the Daniell chapel to commemorate one of Cheshire's ancient families who had connections with Daresbury. Inside the church, the arcades are carried on plain octagonal columns; the pulpit is Jacobean with carvings of heads of angels which Richards considers to be the most elaborate of their kind in the county. It includes a carving similar to the griffin in Alice's Adventures; the font was the gift of Miss Elizabeth Wood. Its elaborate wooden cover was given by Lady Greenall. There is a green man carved in the re-used Jacobean rood screen behind the altar.
The oak bench ends are carved with "inventive tracery-work". In the belfry is a board with an acrostic on the name "Daresbury"; the stained glass in the windows of the south aisle depict the eleven apostles without Judas Iscariot. They were donated in the middle of the 19th century by the Stubbs family, industrialists in Warrington; the east window of the Daniell chapel includes characters from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The window was erected following a memorial fund to celebrate the centenary of Carroll's birth in 1935, it was dedicated on 30 June 1935 by Herbert Jones. The upper panels depict a nativity scene surmounted by eight angels, the leftmost panel showing Lewis Carroll himself accompanied by Alice Liddell; the windows incorporate symbolic panels relating to Carroll's life, including the Cheshire wheatsheaf, the arms of Rugby School and Christ Church and mathematical instruments. Across the base of the window are five panels which include characters from the Alice books together with words from Carroll's poem Christmas Greetings.
The characters are based on the illustrations by John Tenniel. On the south wall are windows designed by Trena Cox depicting The Flight into Egypt and The Annunciation which were donated to the church in 1960 in memory of the Broome family of Preston-on-the-Hill. On the south wall of the church is a memorial by John Gibson, preserved from the old church, it commemorates Sarah, wife of Henry Byrom of Liverpool, who died in 1833. Elsewhere in the church are memorials to Radulphus Starkie who died in the 17th century, to Rebecca Rutter, who died in 1725, a memorial by E. Ashworth to Henry Byrom, who died in 1804. In the chancel is a memorial to George Heron, a canon of Chester Cathedral who baptised Lewis Carroll. In the chancel are two brasses to members of the Greenall family who died in 1861 and 1867. In the Daniell chapel are memorials to members of the Chadwick family of Daresbury Hall; the two-manual organ was restored in 2002 by A. J. Carter. There is a ring of eight bells, all of which were cast by John Warner and Sons in 1913.
The parish registers date from 1617, the churchwardens' accounts from 1663. The churchyard contains a 16th-century font in which, amongst many others, Lewis Carroll was baptised. In the churchyard are the war graves of two soldiers and a Royal Navy schoolmaster of World War I; the centre consists of a semicircular sandstone structure with tall windows attached to the north of the church and approached through the north door. On the
