The Beonna at All Saints is a new events venue and community hub being created at the Grade I listed medieval church of All Saints Benington (which dates from 1100). The church was officially declared ‘closed’ in 2003 and, without a future, was eventually boarded up. With the help of funders including the National Lottery Heritage the building is now being brought back to life.
