Cadney cum Howsham - All Saints
Cadney cum Howsham - All Saints
The church of All Saints has an Early English tower and chancel, and a grand Norman nave arcade. The wooden screen is thought to be from nearby Newstead Priory. Old oil lamps hang from above but there is high intensity lighting from spot lamps. The nave is dark but the whitewashed walls of the chancel make it light. The roof of the nave is a lot lower than the original and this probably came about after storm damage to the chancel roof in 1863 (see memo below). The church was restored in 1912 by Sir Charles Nicholson. There is some old writing painted on the wall.

Memos inside a book in the chapel say, “This book was on the Communion Table on Saturday Nov 21st 1863, when a sudden but tremendous storm of wind from the North West and hail, carried off all the lead and a considerable part of the roof of the Chancel of Cadney Church (taking both to a considerable distance) throwing down the key stone of the East window breaking the glass (except the painted at the top) smashing the Communion Table top and beside other damage. The time the storm happened was 6 ‘o’ clock in the evening”. Edgar Brown Curate

“Chancel completed and used for the first time after the storm and the Holy Communion administered on the 1st Sunday after Easter 1864. The whole of the Church varnished and cleaned July 1864”.
