All Saints, North Scarle, was rebuilt after a fire in 1341/2 though much Early English work remains.

Sir Ninian Comper added the north aisle in 1895-98 along with painted ceilings, stained glass, furnishings and altars.

The chancel dates from the Early English period - as indicated by the low window to the left.

At one time there was a chapel built on the north side of the chancel.

The windows in both nave and chancel were introduced by the late nineteenth century restoration of Comper.
