The History of All Saints' Church
All Saints' Church Burton Dassett is recognised as one of the most beautiful and unspoilt village churches in Warwickshire, and is uniquely situated, standing as it does in an elevated position in the Burton Dassett Hills. as you approach the church
At the approach to the Church you can see a 'holy well' with a well-house built in 1840.
The first Burton Dassett church pre-dates the Domesday Survey of 1087, which which gives us the first recorded history of the district and chronicles the existence of a small church occupying the area now covered by the present nave.
