8/112 Church of St. Saviour
Church, late C12th with later alterations. Sandstone rubble with
stone slate roof. Comprises a single range with angle buttresses and
an open gabled south-west porch of late date. The south wall has 2
Perpendicular windows, double-chamfered with straight heads and 3 lights.
The left-hand one has round heads to the lights, the right-hand one has
ogee heads with cusps. Between them is a chamfered lancet with hood,
wider towards the bottom. At the west end, now within the porch, is
a doorway of early C13th date having a 2-centred arch of 2 moulded orders,
moulded imposts, and angle shafts with capitals which include some
waterleaf carving. The outer shaft on the east side is now missing.
The studded plank door remains. The east wall has a 3-light window with
intersecting tracery. The west wall has a 2-light window with y-tracery.
High up to its right is a blocked chamfered doorway with pointed head,
probably once leading to a timber gallery inside the church. The north
wall has 2 narrow chamfered lights, with hoods, probably C12th. Between
them is a chamfered doorway with round head and a hood with zigzag
decoration, probably restored. Interior. The nave is divided from the
sanctuary by a C17th screen of square panels surmounted by turned
balusters. At its southern end is an octagonal pulpit, also of square
panels, raised on a stone base. In the south wall of the sanctuary is
a piscina with cusped head. Set into the stone flag floor are grave covers,
including a C14th double sepulchral stone with 2 floriated crosses and
inscriptions. The open timber roof has 7 trusses with short king posts
rising off collars. Trusses 2 and 5, from the west, have tie beams, with
carved central bosses. The purlins have straight windbraces running in all
4 directions. The early Cl6th sandstone font is octagonal, with its
carving well preserved. On each side of the bowl is a shield, bearing
heraldic and other devices. V.C.H. Vol. 7, pp. 60-61.
