of St Mary

II*

C12, circa 1700, late C19. The medieval church was burned in a fire of 1681 and the
repaired building appears to have been a long single cell, with transepts added at the
restoration, with a large western bell-turret (weather-boarded with a pyramid roof).
This structure became so dilapidated that it was demolished, except for the old
chancel, in 1883, and replaced by a new building on another site. What remains is an
almost square structure, with a plain tiled roof, flint walling with stone dressings
and brick quoins and buttresses of the later period; the west wall (late C19) is of
rubble with a round arched doorway. There is a small lancet on the north side and at
the south a 2-light trefoil-headed Perpendicular window and a blocked-up round-arched
priests door, the east window being round-headed of the restoration date. Within,
there are many interesting details; a small piscina, late C17 altar rails, seating with
panelled backs, and some medieval tiles. The floor is covered with lettered slabs (eg
1702, 1733, 1799 but several unde cipherable), and brasses (a female figure of
Katherine Dabridgecourt with shield, also 3 panels dated 1607, 1610 and 1726). There
are 2 fine marble wall monuments of 1729 and 1771 on the south wall, and on the north
wall one of 1798 and another of 1781. The west wall contains a framed and painted
recording of the provision of 48 additional sittings in 1831 in an enlarged part of the
church (a transept?), and also 2 'Commandment' panels of the mid C19 with cusped
pointed arches to each frame. There is wall-painting (mainly on the east wall), some
of which may be medieval, including crosses within roundels. Starred for the variety
and interest of the (rather battered) contents.
