TL51NW LITTLE HALLINGBURY CHURCH GREEN
5/60 Church of St.Mary the Virgin
Church. The walls are of flint rubble mixed with some tile and Roman brick.
The roofs to the C12 Nave, C12 - C13 Chancel, Cl4 Porch and C19 Vestry are
plain red tile. The Bell Turret, rebuilt C19 has a timber framed and
plastered base and octagonal shingle spire. C19 North Aisle is clad with
treated stainless steel as used on the Thomas Flood Barrage. The South Porch
is of late Cl4 timber construction with unusual side tracery of squashed
ogees and circles and has original bargeboards to gable. C12 south doorway
is of Roman brick with rubble infilled tympanum supported by crenellated and
moulded beam. The door Cl4 is of 4 panels with cinquefoil heads. Internally
the nave has a modern north arcade. Of the 3 south wall windows the furthest east
is C13 Lancet, C14 and C19 work shows in the other two, whilst west of the
south doorway is a blocked C12 window of Roman brick. The Chancel walls may
be of the same C12 date as the nave, but were lengthened, if not rebuilt in C13.
It has an early C16 roof with moulded wall plate carved with running foliage,
three main single hammerbeam frames with shields "the common couples between
them are braced to their collars with their timbers forming depressed arches,
above the apexes of which the collars are weakly cranked" (C.A. Hewett 1974).
The nave roof has a reconstructed octagonal Crown Post with moulded base and
capital and a C15 moulded tie beam with curved braces and wall plate.
In the Chancel is a C13 Piscina with stopped and moulded jambs and trefoiled
head. There is a niche in the south wall with a moulded shelf and spread
trefoiled head with horizontal moulding above (R.C.H.M. 1).
