All Saints Church in Loose

All Saints Church in Loose is a beautiful old church with a beautiful churchyard in a beautiful village. Beautiful! An ancient churchyard surrounds the church on all sides and features some really interesting old graves. The church is built on a significant slope so the grounds to the rear of the building are raised up to overlook the adjacent vicarage and its pretty gardens. The churchyard extends down the slope away from the church where it meets a raised wall overlooking the picturesque loose stream and path as the they meander towards the chequers pub nearby.

The church and churchyard are very old and the site dates back at least to the norman invasion of 1066 – a yew tree on the site is actually mentioned in the historical Domesday Book of 1086. The church is in active and busy use and is home to a large and enthusiastic congregation from the village and surrounding area.
