All Saints' Church, Babworth

Babworth's church is nestled in a quiet country lane, the present church dates from the 15th century.

It was here that Richard Clifton was curate from 1586 until 1604. His preaching in the new manner had a strong influence on the foundation of the Pilgrim movement. William Brewster from Scrooby and William Bradford from Austerfield were regular attendees of his services; the footpath to the church from their homes is known as the Pilgrims' Way.

The chancel and sanctuary contain furniture by Robert (Mousey) Thompson who was part of the 1920s Arts and Crafts movement. The items of furniture bear his famous carved mouse trademark. A visit to Babworth Church during the annual Snowdrop Festival is highly recommended. Visitors are always welcome to attend services at Babworth.
