Known as All Saints' Parish Church, it was a chapel of ease to St Michael's, Heavitree. Constructed in the Gothic style out of stone, it had a chancel, nave, south transept, south porch and a small western turret with a single open bell. Lord Poltimore donated the ¾ acre of land. The building was funded with £800 raised by the churchwardens and £400 left as a legacy. Designed by Mr Ashworth, it was consecrated on 23rd June 1862. The churchyard has some interesting graves including that of Pvt. F. H. Cheshire who survived the charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava, in the Crimean War.

Burials ceased in 1973, when the church went out of use.
The church building is now being used as a Community Hall.
