TG 30 NW
3/82 Remains of Church of
26/11/59 St. Saviour
Ruins of parish church. Almost undateable. Appears to be 3 celled, that is,
nave and chancel with a central space. Walls of this central area are
substantially built and on north side flat buttresses survive. Since chancel
and nave are the same width the suggestion that this building originally had
a central tower has some credibility. If so dateable to C12-C13, most likely
the latter. Flint and once with ashlar dressings. No roof. Fragments of
wall survive here and there. No evidence of western tower. Holes at intervals
mark sites of windows, but there are none to the central space, again
suggesting a tower. Marks of south porch discernable. A brick arch is in
situ to west side of central space in an unlikely place for a chancel arch
but very likely as a central tower arch.
