All Saints church at Brailsford in Derbyshire
All Saint's Church at Brailsford
The main point of interest at Brailsford has to be All Saints Church, or half a church as stated in the Doomsday Book, referring to its status as a shared church between Brailsford and the hamlet of Ednaston. It is set in a delightful setting, about half a mile from the village, down a long country lane.It was originally built in the 11th and 12th centuries and consists of a nave, chancel, south aisle and tower. There have been later modifications like the 14th century chancel arch. The tower is ashlar-faced and diagonaly buttressed with a Perpendicular west door and west window.
It contains an octagonal font in the Perpendicular style, with the lower part of the base exhibiting the Tudor rose. In the graveyard is a mid 11th century Saxon Cross, showing interlace and a human figure.
