All Saints' Church, Hessle

This originally 12th century church was almost completely rebuilt by architect R.G. Smith of Hull in 1870, getting a longer nave and a new chancel.

The carved reredos is divided into seven sections, with the flanking buttresses filled in with green marble. The three panels in the center are decorated with Salviati mosaics of the cross surrounded by Pelican with her Young and the Lamb of God.

The Builder. March 26, 1870. 251.
