Notes on Church:
All Saints Church finally answered many requests from Coleshill village to have its own church. Opened in 1861 it was designed by George Edmund Street, in the Early English style, but typically very well built.

Introduction to Stained Glass:Three Hardman stained glass windows must have been very rapidly made and fitted in the Chancel ready for the church's consecration on 7th November 1861. Most unusually, the large east window for the new church was donated by the Rector of Amersham in his own will to be in memory of himself instead of a monument in the churchyard. He died a few weeks before the foundation stone of the church was laid. The other 2 Hardman windows are unusual quatrefoil shapes. The church also has a Kempe window of 1933 and one by Chapel Studio of 1995.
