Sir George Gilbert Scott returned to the city in the following year in 1874 when he was commissioned to design All Saints Church which was consecrated in November 1875. The cost was met by subscriptions and a benefaction from the family of Thomas Hedley, first perpetual curate of St. James. It is a modest stone church in Decorated style, built close to a railway track and about ten minutes walk from the cathedral. It has been described by Pevsner as the ‘finest C19 church in Gloucestershire’. The work probably came through Scott’s connections with the cathedral clergy, with whom Scott seems to have had a good relationship. It is now a cultural centre.
