2/2 Church of All Saints
16. 3. 66
Parish Church. Nave and chancel C14. No tower: it is conjectured that a C12
crossing tower existed by what remains of the base between the chancel and
nave (see interior below). C19 south porch. Possibly a cruciform plan but by
no means certain. The nave is in unknapped flint and rubble with slated roof.
The chancel is also in flint rubble with plain tiled roof. Nave has diagonal
stepped buttresses to the west end. To the north wall of the chancel there is
at the east end a blocked C12 window at high level which is said to be a
remaining tower window. Below this is a partially bricked up doorway with a
rectilinear window possibly C16. There are a mixture of windows to the north
and south of the nave and chancel: intersecting, curvilinear and Y-tracery,
mostly C19. Inside the nave the C12 base of the tower can be seen in the form
of west and east arches, both decorated towards the west, the former with one
order of colonnettes and one zig zag and the latter one similar but with 2 zig
zags. The eastern tower window is visible from inside. Font C15 octagonal
with lions at stem and the 4 evangelist symbols and 4 flowers to the sides of
the bowl. C18 Communion rail. 2 piscinas to south wall of chancel, C14 and
C15, the C14 one flanked by a dropped window cill sedilia. A brass of two
headless figures c.1420 said to represent John de Staverton and his wife. A
C15 or C16 key, the wards of the head forming the letters IKE.
