Mealsgate – All Hallows Old Church
The small Norman chapel of Old All Hallows is now desolate and overgrown. Inside is a white marble statue to George Moore of nearby Whitehall, who died tragically in 1876. The new All Hallows Church has a plaque dated 1962 from the French government expressing their gratitude for Moore’s work in helping Paris during the 1871 seige.
In the Old Church is a single stained glass window of ‘Gethsemane’, by Charles Kempe.
