The church of All Saints in Orby is a typical greenstone marshland building of the Perpendicular period, though an Early English lancet survives in the north wall of the nave and there is a Decorated window in the chancel, rebuilt in 1888.

The interior is glossy white and distinctly ‘High’ Anglican.
