The Church of All Hallows in Gedling is known for its steeple, one of the most impressive spires in Nottinghamshire. The spire, dating from around 1300, is unusually thin, and the steeple is slightly twisted, creating an elegant skyline. White's Directory of 1853 reports: "It has a handsome, lofty spire and four bells". The earliest parts of the church date from around 1200. The parish of Gedling includes Gelding, Carlton and Stoke Bardolph.
