Debach All Saints church
This church is now a private house. This photograph was taken with the kind permission of the owner. It had been completely rebuilt in 1856 after falling into disrepair in the 1830’s and so there is nothing of architectural interest to mention. We look to White’s Directory of 1845 and he describes it as ‘a small ancient fabric’. Whether that was the church mentioned in Domesday or a later building, I cannot determine. The parish has long been consolidated with Boulge and it was perhaps inevitable that it would become redundant, as the parish became less inhabited during the late Victorian era when many agricultural workers moved into the towns to work in the factories. Many churches have suffered the same fate and have been taken for secular use, but this is better by far than a forgotten heap of rubble in the corner of a field.
