SK40 SW CHURCH LANE (North East Side)
Church of All Saints
Small parish church. Late C13, with some C15 work, restored. Coursed
limestone rubble with ashlar dressings, and plain tiled roof. Small west
tower over nave roof, short south aisle, and chancel. Tower is timber framed
and tile hung with wood traceried bell chamber lights and pyramidal roof.
Victorian Decorated-style window in its west wall. South door in Victorian
gabled porch. Angle buttresses to nave and aisle, which has Perpendicular
windows, drop--ended hoodmoulds with corbel heads. Their tracery is of two
lights, trefoiled ogee work. East window of aisle is reticulated, Decorated
tracery of 3-lights. Chancel is rendered over limestone rubble in the south
wall, cobble to the east, with C15 windows, renewed in east and north. North
windows are also C15, two of them renewed. Inside, the tower sits within the
western bay of the nave, an almost self-supporting timbered structure : thick
squared corner posts have braces to tie beams and struts which tie into the
outer stone walls, in a construction reminiscent more of&mx than
Leicestershire. Restored in the "scrape" tradition throughout. Nave arcade
of two bays, C13, with filletted cylindrical shafts and flat octagonal abaci
ornamented with simple foliate emblems in relief. Roll-moulded chamfered
arches. Nave roof may be Mediaeval : common rafter roof lavishly timbered
with sweeping curved braces. Principal rafter or truss only marks division
with chancel, Queenpost construction with raking struts springing from
corbels. Another similar roof truss in the chancel indicates its different
construction period. South west chancel window is contained within a
chamfered embrasure with trefoiled arched head. Foiled Piscines. Heavily
varnished pitchpine Victorian fittings throughout.
