All Saints' Church, Harby is a Grade II listed parish church in the Church of England in Harby, Nottinghamshire.

History

The church in Harby was endowed with a chantry chapel by King Edward I in 1294, following the death of Queen Eleanor. However, the chapel was dissolved at the Reformation and the church became a chapel of ease to North Clifton.

By the middle of the 19th century it was in a poor state of repair. John Thomas Lee of London was appointed as the architect for a new building. Construction began in 1874 and it was consecrated on 2 August 1877. The old church was then demolished and some parts re-used in the new building.

In 1963, the shingles on the spire were replaced with Canadian cedar.

In January 2010 work began on renovating the roofs, incorporating insulation, a breathable membrane and all new tiles.
