7/24 Church of All Saints
Church. Romanesque door surround of C11 or C12. Perpendicular tower
of before 1555 and neo-classical nave of 1803. Red and yellow
sandstone ashlar to tower and porch. Flemish bond brick with a plain
tile roof. Western tower, nave and south-western porch. Tower:
western face: diagonal buttresses to the corners. Deeply chamfered
doorway with pointed arch, hood mould and label stops. Three-light
window above probably of C19 date with three pointed lights.
Staircase lancets to right of this. Two-light louvred belfry opening
above with Y-tracery, hood-mould and figurehead label stops, that at
right being a grotesque head. Battlemented parapet with piers to the
corners. The north face of the tower has a C20 service lean-to
attached to its lower stage and a string course between the stages.
Similar belfry to that on the western front. The southern face has
the initials I B divided by a chalice in relief at right above the
string course and a circular clockface to the centre below the belfry
opening. Nave: the south face is of 4 bays of brick with a deep stone
plinth with, to the left hand side, a porch built as a war memorial in
1926 of ashlar. This is gabled with a pointed, chamfered arch.
Within and to either wall are benches above which are tablets in
pointed niches inscribed with the names of the dead. The door to the
church has a Romanesque surround, apparently re-positioned here. To
either side are pilarettes with a hollow chamfer to their centres. At
the level of the capitals is a band of leaf and dart moulding and to
the arch and intrados are chevron patterns. To right of the porch are
two round-arched windows and to the far right a doorway with stone
surround and lunette window above. The north face is similar with 2
round-headed windows at left and two windows at right with a blocked
doorway to right of centre. The western end has a Venetian window and
hipped roof and a blocked doorway at right.
Interior: Western gallery with front of raised and fielded panels
supported on iron columns of quatrefoil section.
