More about All Saints Church, Raleigh Street:

"The Church and it's buildings were erected in 1864. These included the church building, school, headmaster's house and vicarage. They were built in 1864 and paid for by a sole benefactor, William Windley JP (b. 1821 d. 1877). The Architect was TC Hine of Nottingham and the church and many of the other buildings are now Grade II listed.

The church building is mostly constructed of sandstone, in a Gothic revival style, with fine broach spire which can be seen from several parts of the city. The spire rises to 175 feet and houses a ring of ten bells.

The nave is capable of seating 500. It's altar stands on a dais in front of the chancel arch. To the left of the nave altar is the Lectern (Brass Eagle). This was given in memory of Mary Stockwood who died in 1886, aged 16.
Set into the wooden panelling in the chancel are various memorials many of which remember members of the founder’s family (the Windleys)."
