"The exterior of the Church (All Saints) is good and sightly, though the north aisle is in need of repair, and the walls of the clere-story bulge a little, both on the north and south sides...The tower is of the Early English order, and may be assigned to the middle of the 13th century. Externally it appears massive and well proportioned, and seventy feet high to the tops fo the corner turrets. The battlements and leaden spire are modern. There are 4 stories and 5 bells. The external facing of each of the three lower stories is a shafted arcade."

Text by Vicar of Elm Edward Swann from the book 'The Fen and Marshland Churches'.
