The Friends of All Saints’ Church have been privileged to hold the ‘Brixworth Lecture’ every October/November for the past 30 years, the first being in 1983 given by Dr HM Taylor entitled, ‘All Saints’ Church, Brixworth: How the Church Took Its Shape’.

We have enjoyed listening to some of the Country’s top professors & historians as well as some from other countries.

Many of the lectures have subsequently been published and we are pleased to offer for sale some of these publications via our website and from the Church building.

In addition to these we have other publications by authoritative people in their field who have worked on research of the Church, giving an all-round explanation about what is one of the best churches in the country.

A list of all the Brixworth lecture titles can be found on the Leicester University website –, follow the link for the Medieval Research Department and then Brixworth Lectures or click here
