Dingley, All saints

The church forms part of an ensemble with Dingley Hall (built by Edward Griffin 1558 – 60 and partly remodelled his descendent Sir Edward Griffin in the 1680’s) and Henry Hakewill’s classical stable block of 1790. The church antedates its neighbours dating back to the 12th Century when there was a Preceptor of the Knights Hospitallers of St John here (dissolved at the Reformation) and acquired by the Griffin family. The interior of this handsome church is a pleasant palimpsest of improvement and change – this includes the addition of the Griffin chapel in the 16th century on the south side. Note the grand tomb in the churchyard to the hero of the Battle of Jutland, Admiral Beatty, 1936, who took the house in the early 20th century. High above the plain which to the west lies Market Harborough, this is a beautifully sited church.
