SP 12 NE
3/1 Church of St Nicholas
25.8.60 II*

Anglican Parish Church. Late C12 nave and chancel with C15 remodelling, restored
(heavily) 1888 by Mark Hookham of Stow-on-the-Wold. Rubble with Cotswold stone
roof. Small 3-bay nave with gabled south porch (of 1888), bay chancel heavily
buttressed to south and with vestry to North. The West gable end is capped
by a single bellcote (1888) but retains 3 enriched strings with chevron (below),
pellet (centre) and double cable (upper), as well as central wall buttress below
central lancet; it is largely built in ashlar. The South wall may have been
rebuilt in C15; it retains a C12 eaves string and has a 3-light square head
window with rectilinear tracery. The South door is richly ornamented: 2 orders
of nook-shafts, inner ones twisted on chevron bases, scallop caps; label of
saltire crosses, the outer order is of projecting chevron, the inner of cable,
and bead. The tympanum is decorated with a diaper of chip-carved crosses, as
at Aston Blank and Upper Slaughter, over a larger similar lintel in a surround
of chevron on a roll-mould and hollow jambs. The chancel has corner and 2 added
buttresses and dado string. To South blocked central window, 2-light plate-
tracery window without label with off-centre low-side window below it. The 2
round headed lancets in East wall were restored in 1888 (pace BOE). On North
side a string with plain chevron ornament. The North wall of the nave has a
moulded string, but has been remodelled, fragments probably from North door
in porch.
Interior scraped and 2 steps down. Chancel arch (rebuilt?) pointed with keeled
roll-mould, hollow outer chevron order and label of saltire grosses, the nook
shafts are reserved within chevron jambs, scallop caps, pelletted imposts; on
chancel side the archway is plainer with saltire crosses, the chamfered jambs
suggesting a remodelling date of c.1200. The chancel has a c.1200 string, pointed
piscina with broken projecting lip on crude-head corbel and chaumbries. Panelled
(re-used C17?) reredos. Marble wall monument on N side of chancel to John Payne
(died 1813). Font octagonal on heavy stem, possibly C14, moulded lip; Verey
suggests that it is C15 and cut back from circular bowl.
