Replacing a larger medieval building on the same site, All Saints, Ingham, dates from 1792 but fell prey to Victorian Gothicising in 1896.

To Henry Thorold¹ it was 'devout and devotional, and soaked in prayer'.

Kelly's Directory 1930 reports :-

"The church of All Saints, standing on rising ground, is a small building of stone, in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, vestry (added in 1901) and a turret containing one bell:

the parish records make mention of a north aisle, of 3 bells and of the sale of the lead on the roof, so it would seem that the church was formerly larger and possessed a tower :

the chancel still retains a piscina of the 13th century :

the church was partly rebuilt in 1792, and restored at intervals from 1896 to 1906, at a cost of about £800, and has 120 sittings"

White's Directory 1872 has :-

"The Church (All Saints) is a small edifice, consisting of nave and chancel, with bell turret, rebuilt about the year 1796.

The vicarage, valued in K.B. at £6. 13s. 4d., and now at £90, is in the incumbency of the Rev. S. K. Webster, M.A. who has a good residence, built in 1852, at an expense of about £1000.

At the enclosure, in 1769, the corn tithes were commuted for an allotment of 243A. 2R. 24P., and the hay tithes for 58A.1R. 36P. The former belongs to R. H. C. Nevile, Esq., and the latter to John Dalton, Esq. The vicarial glebe is 47 acres".
