Event description
Join a Rayne Heritage Guide to see the key features of a small parish church in Rayne, Essex.

About this event

All Saints' Parish Church has been a centre for the Rayne community for over 1,000 years. Its fabric has undergone several transformations, due to the endless cycle of renewal, so is multi-period. The story of the people who have been its Rectors and Curates, along with its parishioners, is also interesting. For example, Richard Kidder, the Rector who led the village through the plague in 1666, was also the source of the lyrics for Handel's "Messiah".

The circular route around All Saints contains 23 points of interest, with the guide selecting which ones to highlight . The tour is considered "easy" walking. However, there are some uneven surfaces where caution is advised. Participants should be aged 12 and above. Young persons must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

This tour, along with the Rayne Heritage Trail, was devised as part of a Heritage Lottery Fund project which refurbished and reordered the church in 2020 - 2021.

Rayne Heritage was delighted to be chosen as a Finalist in the East of England Tourism Awards 2021-2022.
