All Saints' Church, Daresbury
All Saints' Church, Daresbury
All Saints' is best known because of its association with Lewis Carroll who is commemorated in its stained glass windows depicting characters from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building. The church is an active Anglican parish church in the diocese of Chester, the archdeaconry of Chester and the deanery of Great Budworth.
The existing building other than the tower was erected between 1870 and 1872 by Paley and Austin in the Gothic Revival style during which the original rood loft and screen were destroyed. Daresbury became a parish separate from Runcorn in February 1880. Families who have been associated with the church over the centuries are those of Greenall, Rylands, Chadwick, Heron, Milner, Houghton, and Okell. The tower was restored in 1872 by Sir Gilbert Greenall.
