RC Church of All Saints, Hassop
Places of Worship
The building was built in 1816/1818 and designed in the Classical Revival Style. Originally a private chapel for the Eyre family of
Hassop Hall, it is Grade 1 Listed: in fact, it is the only such church in the whole of the Diocese.
The church has an impressive Etruscan pillared portico, Grecian side windows, and Tuscan pilasters at the rear. However, the
severe simplicity of the exterior belies the ornate decoration within. The coved and coffered ceiling resembles a barrel. The
beautifully ornate altar is believed to be of French origin. In the gallery, the chamber organ by H. C. Lincoln dates from the 1820s.
