Site: All Saints Church tower (1 memorial)

SW18, Wandsworth High Street, All Saints Church

The Church of England has this to say about this church: 
Built: 17th - 19th centuries, Architect: William Jupp, Listing: grade 2*. All Saints Church stands on the site of an earlier church, dating from the thirteenth century, in a central position in the original village of Wandsworth. The river Wandle is close by to the east, a few hundred yards from where it flows into the River Thames. 
The lower parts of the west tower were built in 1630, the upper storey an addition in 1841 when the peal of eight bells was installed. The north aisle was built in 1724 and the remainder rebuilt by William Jupp 1778-80. A new chancel, designed by E W Mountford was added in 1900.
