A view of the south facing elevation of All Saints' Church situated at the eastern end of the village. The Anglican tradition in Burnham Market exists as a result of a combination of three ancient parishes; Westgate, Sutton, and Ulph. The name of this parish, Burnham Sutton-cum-Ulph, derives from the late 18C when the incumbent at the time, the father of Admiral Horatio Nelson, found this church and that of Burnham Sutton in such poor condition that he applied to cease using Burnham Sutton Church and to combine the latter with the parish of Burnham Ulph, thereby forming the ‘new’ parish of Burnham Sutton-cum-Ulph. The Rev. Edmund Nelson complained to church authorities that the parishes were not wealthy enough to sustain two churches and was given permission to pull down St Ethelbert's church in Burnham Sutton, to use or sell the stone, and to use the proceeds to repair this building. All Saints is thought to have been the first church to be built in the Burnham area, dating from the late Saxon period.The oldest parts of the present building date to around 1190. The word Ulph may come from the ancient personal name Ulf.
