Wellingborough, All Hallows

Wellingborough, All Hallows

A distinctive building with a stone striped tower and soaring spire. Medieval in origin, with regular gothic arches and wide well lit aisles and side chapels, today it is a fascinating repository of twentieth century ecclesiastical art. In the south transept there is a large wall painting of The Ascension by Hans Feibusch (1952), the German émigré artist whose work can also be found in Chichester Cathedral and Portmeirion (a friend of Bishop Bell and Clough Williams – Ellis). Almost contemporary with this is the stained glass by Evie Hone (1955), John Piper and Patrick Reyntiens (1960s), and the French artist Jean Barillet (1962). It is no coincidence that the vicar here at that time had previously served under Fr. Walter Hussey at St. Mathew's in Northampton. All this twentieth century work builds on the very grand reordering of the church in the late nineteenth century which entailed the rebuilding and dressing of the chancel. Here you will also find six engaging misericords in the choir dating from the late fifteenth century.
