The church was built in 1867 (or 1868) and designed by the Lancaster architect E. G. Paley.

Architecture

All Saints is constructed in stone rubble with ashlar dressings, and has a slate roof. It is a small church in Neo-Norman style. Its plan consists of a three-bay nave, an apsidal chancel, a north vestry, and a south porch. The windows are round-headed. At the west end of the church is a bellcote. On the gable at the east end of the nave is a cross finial. The interior of the church is painted blue. The font, which was moved here from St. Mary Kirkby Lonsdale, is dated 1686. Also in the church are painted commandment boards.
