The Parish Church of All Saints, Bingley
The history of the church probably dates back to pre-Norman times. It is thought that there may have been a wooden church on this location for many years prior to the Norman conquest, although no records exist. The first records of the church indicate it was rebuilt sometime after 1066 by the Lord of the Manor, William Paganel, who gave it to Drax Priory in the time of Archbishop Thurstan (11191140).

This building was probably rebuilt many times over the centuries, culminating in the present structure, which was begun during the reign of Henry VIII (14911547). Although it has been much restored in later centuries, the overall aspect of the church is much the same as it would have appeared in Tudor times when it was undergoing major rebuilding. The tower was added in the late 15th or early 16th century and the chancel in 1518.

The church is a grade II* listed building as it is A church adding much to the townscape of the old village centre of Bingley. (ENGLISH HERITAGE BUILDING ID: 338005 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
