All Hallows Church
All Hallows Church has served as the parish church of Wellingborough since the 12th century. It has a Norman south doorway, the tower is 13th century supporting a later spire and the body of the church is mainly 14th century.
Six remarkable misericord seats in the chancel point to a monastic influence, although there were no monks as such, but a number of lay clergy.
The church narrowly avoided being burnt down during the great fire of Wellingborough in 1738 when some of the lead on the roof melted. As a result of the fire, 200 houses were destroyed and many of the 600 homeless people sheltered in the church.
As part of the profile-raising of the BID’s ‘Discover Wellingborough’ campaign, we have just arranged to have one of the four Welli buses re-branded. The community bus service serving Wellingborough and surrounding villages has been given a new image to help drive trade into the town, literally!
