All Saints’ Church is unusual for the East Midlands - a tile clad timber framed tower appears more Kentish in appearance than the west Leicestershire church that it is. The church is also noted for its connections with its former incumbent - the Rev.Teddy Boston was a friend of Rev.Awdry and the Cadeby Light Railway in the Rectory Grounds was an attraction until it finally closed 2005.

The church roofs were in a poor condition with water ingress a significant problem.

Restoration works in the roof commenced at Easter 2014 with Pearce Roofing Services as main contractor. New replacement clay tiles are handmade by Dreadnought Tiles. Ceiling plaster is being renewed in lime plaster due to the original plaster being applied to the tile backs. Stonework repairs and drainage improvements are also being undertaken.

Photographs show the roofs before and during repairs.
