3/29 Church of
Parish church. c1200, C15, 1863 restoration by Ewan Christian.
Greenstone squared rubble with ashlar dressings and some brick
raising, green slate roofs with stone coped gables, crosses
fleury and decorative tiled ridges. Nave with western bellcote,
north aisle, chancel, south porch, vestry. A large central
buttress divides the west end of the church, and supports the
ashlar octagonal bellcote which has 4 shouldered openings, a
nail headcornice and short steeple crowned with a weather vane.
To either side of the buttress are single C19 2 light windows
with quatrefoils over and hood moulds with foliate stops. Nave
and aisles have been totally rebuilt externally in 1863
restoration. The north side of the north aisle has 3 two light
windows with cusped heads to the lights. The chancel has
medieval fabric, and has some brick patching and raising on the
north side. The vestry has a western doorway and single eastern
light. The chancel east window is C15 with 3 cusped lights,
panel tracery above and human head labels. The south chancel
window is C19, of 2 lights. The nave south wall has a large C19
3 light window with reticulated tracery and segmental head, and a
single light with trefoil over. Beyond the porch is a single C19
lancet. The C19 gabled south porch has a steeply pointed outer
doorway with half engaged shafts and annular capitals. The inner
doorway is in a plainer pointed opening. Interior. The 3 bay
north arcade of c1200 has double chamfered just pointed arches.
The piers and responds have been rebuilt in C19, but it seems
likely that the keeled responds have been recut whereas the
concave quatrefoil piers with attached annular shafts look
entirely C19. The double chamfered chancel arch also has recut
keeled responds. Roofs and fittings are C19, including the font,
altar rail and pulpit. Chancel screen reconstructed in C19
contains some C15 panels. Built into the east wall of the nave,
to either side of the chancel arch are 2 fragments of an
elaborately carved c1200 cross. On the north side the panel,
which has nail head decoration depicts the crucifixion scene, the
figure on the cross being flanked by 2 figures and the foot of
Christ is nailed with one nail. Beneath is foliate decoration
which is continued on the panel on the south side. On the floor
below the northern panel is the cut down roughly hewn bowl of an
early octagonal font. Monuments. In the chancel north wall is a
domed brass plaque inscribed to Gulielmus Chapman, d.1722.
