The church of All Saints in Moulton has a fine four stage Perpendicular tower with spire, 165 ft high.

Inside are late-twelfth century arcades and an Early English clerestory, but many of the windows date from Victorian improvements.

The chancel has a simple Early English sedilia and a plain fourteenth century easter sepulchre.

The font in All Saints Church, Moulton, has a relief carving depicting the Baptism of Christ.

Flanking the stem of this "bulgy bowl" (Pevsner) are the figures of Adam and Eve.

It was made in 1719 by William Tydd.

At approximately 100 feet high to the cap and with nine floors, Moulton windmill is reputedly the tallest mill in the country.

It was built in 1822 by Robert King and was most recently worked by the Biggadike family from 1924 to 1995.

The mill has now been completely restored to working order and is open to the public.

The windmill at Moulton has been restored to full working order.

This photograph shows, to the right, the great spur wheel and one of the smaller stone nuts.

When these two gears are engaged the vertical shaft through the stone nut rotates one of the millstones below and grain is ground into flour or animal feed.
