All Saints’ Church, Sawley, is a Grade I listed parish church in Sawley, Derbyshire, England.


The church dates from the 11th century but the existing structure is mainly thirteenth century and contains Saxon and Norman work. The chancel was restored in 1865 at the expense of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners. More substantial work was carried out in 1889 at a cost of £2,000, when a new roof, new flooring and new seating were provided. The church reopened on 23 October 1889 by the Bishop of Southwell.
