Church of All Saints, Keyham
Tower arch, 15th century.
Church of All Saints, Keyham, Leics.
A small church comprising nave and chancel with west tower and south porch.

The church probably dates back to the 13th century, although the Listing describes it as 15th/16th century when it was clearly much rebuilt, including the tower. There was the usual Victorian restoration, when it is likely that the nave windows were renewed, and the porch dates from this time. The east window is unusual and is thought to date to around 1600. A blocked door in the north wall of the nave is surmounted by a pair of grotesque carvings of the medieval period.

The tie beams in the nave are probably 15th century, but the rest of the roof structure is modern.

There is a delicately formed 18th century Georgian font and a Royal Coat of Arms of the period 1801-1816.

The church is Listed Grade II*.
