TM 16 SE
1/137 Church of St Andrew

- II*

Parish church; medieval with restoration of c.1880. Nave, chancel, west tower
and south porch. Mainly plastered flint rubble to nave, and flushed C19 flint
facing to chancel; freestone dressings. Tower of flint rubble with extensive
crude dressings of pink/buff brick; an unusual feature for this early date
(probably early C15). Apart from the belfry windows with ashlar Y-tracery,
the tower would have been entirely plastered; simple splayed 2-centred
doorways and windows. Slated nave roof, concrete plaintiled roofs to chancel
and porch. Good early C16 porch of red brick with crowstepping, polygonal
buttresses, and moulded and labelled doorway with three image niches above;
moulded rafters, with arch-braced ridge-piece only. Various 2-light windows
in nave and chancel, from C14 to early C16: mostly restored C19, but one has
CI4 grotesque corbel stones. Mid C14 moulded south doorway. Roof of c.1500
over nave and chancel: moulded tie-beams with heavy knee-braces, coupled
rafters with soulaces (the moulded crownpost above the chancel is probably a
C19 introduction). Good C13 piscina with angle shafts with foliate capitals
and cusped trefoiled head. Panelled C18 pulpit on turned clustered legs.
