Constructed in 1861 All Saints Church was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and has a Grade II listing as a Building of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. Its 115 feet tall spire is widely visible and forms a significant landmark from within the village and beyond.
Sir Gilbert Scott (1811 - 1878) is regarded as one of the foremost 19th century architects, and certainly one of the most prolific. His church work epitomizes the zenith of Victorian ecclesiastical design. His masterpiece is widely regarded to be St. Pancras Railway Station in London (1866 - 1876), but he is also especially remembered in London for the Albert Memorial (1864- 1871) and the Foreign Office (1862). Four of his smaller new village churches have always been considered as being amongst his best designs; All Saints Church, Hawkhurst is one of these.
