Small but characterful, All Saints, Irby-in-the-Marsh, stands on what passes for a hill in the area.

The tower and nave are Georgian, built on a medieval base.

Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-

"The church of All Saints is an edifice of sandstone and brick, in the Norman and Perpendicular styles, consisting of chancel, nave and a low western tower with pinnacles containing 3 bells:

the church appears originally to have had aisles, and the northern arcade remains, built up in the wall:

in 1863 the church was restored, reseated and new roofed, and in 1886 the chancel was rebuilt:

there are 95 sittings.

In the churchyard is an altar tomb to the Rev. John Smorthwaite, vicar, 1813.

The register dates from the year I539"
