Woodton has one church: All Saints’, which has regular services. The Methodist Chapel is now to be a private dwelling.
All Saints’ Church, Woodton
All Saints’ Church has a round tower, of Norman or possibly Saxon construction. The nave and chancel date from 1300. Inside is a beautifully sculpted memorial to Ann Suckling, the great-great-grand mother of Lord Nelson. The church contains a good example of a ‘squint’ (allowing the altar to be seen from the aisle), with a carved head above. All Saints Woodton is a Grade II* Listed Building.
Services and events at All Saints
All Saints has a ring of six bells, which were restored in 1984. Ringing is good exercise, in a friendly, sociable atmopshere. New ringers (whether beginners or experienced) are always welcome. Bell Ringing practice nights appear in our Village Diary as follows:
- Every first and fourth Wednesday of the month, at 7:30pm, for 1½ hours
- Every second and third Friday of the month, at 7:30pm, for 1½ hours
