7/10 Church of St Andrew
Parish church. Mentioned in Domesday, enlarged by the construction of a north
aisle in 1160 (this arcade still remaining as the chief feature), C19 restoration,
including a chancel arch of 1833 and nave extension (and west tower demolished) of
1851. Chancel, nave with north aisle, extended without further arcading to form
a vestry, south porch, western bell turret. Flint walls and tiled roof. The
appearance is that of a Victorian church; plain roof with timber bell-turret,
having a pyramid tile roof and boarded walls. Flint walls (cemented to the
chancel) with stone dressings; buttresses, coupled traceried lights (3 lights
east and west windows), single C14 windows in the chancel. Inside the 2 round
arches rest on massive cylindrical and ½-cylindrical columns, which have square
abaci with scalloped caps and moulded bases, on square plinths. There is a C13
moulded 3-lobed bracket, which once supported a statue next to the east window,
but is now positioned next to the south door. There are many floor slabs of the
C18 and early C19, in the aisle, and some wall monuments (of 1770 and 1801).
