CHURCH OF ST STEPHEN
1845, by Ferry, replacing a medieval building. Ferry was a fellow-pupil of Pugin and
this Early English design represents advanced scholarship for its date. Chancel of 2
bays, with vestry on the north side, nave of 4 bays, and Tower above the south porch
(3rd bay). Steep tile roof. Walling of flint with stone dressings, eaves fascia on
brackets, hood moulds linked to impost moulded band, cill band, plinth, stepped
buttresses; at the west end a doorway of circa 1200 (from the old church) has been
incorporated, with slender shafts. Lancets and coupled lancets beneath cusped plate
tracery, the east end has 3 lancets below a circular window. The west has 2 lancets
set within an external 5-arched arcade beneath a triangular (segmental) opening,
having 3 circular lights. The tower has 4 stages, the 2nd having battered corners
forming an octagonal base to the 3rd stage, which has small double lancets to each
face and ends in a parapet, the 4th being a stone spire. Within there is a C15
Perpendicular octagonal font, the remains of a C15 wood screen, a Thomas Sympson
bequest brass of 1674, and several C18 monuments. Of 1845, there is a stone
pulpit, the prescriptions in 2 lancet panels set in the well opposite the door, and
some stained glass (including 2 heraldic designs in the south side of the chancel),
and an arch-braced hammer-beam roof.
