Church of St. Mary

GV I

Parish church. Medieval, the chancel restored C18 and lace C19. Nave,
chancel, truncated west tower, south porch, north vestry. Flint and stone
rubble, the nave plastered; stone dressings; C18 east wall of chancel with
chequerwork of red brick and flint; C19 north and south chancel walls with 2
bands of knapped flint. Thatched roofs. Only the lower stage of the C15
square tower remains, with diagonal buttresses and a largely original 3-light
west window below which is a stone inscription; the tower supports a
weatherboarded and gabled belfry. The nave walls are C12, at least partly of
herringbone rubble; there is a break in the walling towards the east end
indicating a later extension or possibly the incorporation of part of the
former chancel. C12 north and south doorways with semi-circular arches, chat
to the north now blocked, that to the south remodelled C15. To the north the
nave has 2 2-light square-headed Perpendicular windows (one renewed) ; to the
south there is one 3-light Perpendicular window and 3 C19 windows, one a
lancet and 2 with Y-tracery. Timber framed, plastered and thatched porch,
probably C18. Early C14 2-bay chancel, much rebuilt; the windows are mainly
C19, although the Priest's doorway and parts of the south east window appear
to be original. 3-light east window with curvilinear tracery, probably C18.
Interior. Good C15 arched-braced nave roof of 8 bays, with crenellated
wallplate and collars; at the west end the wall posts of 3 trusses retain
original carved figures at their bases, with shields to the westernmost truss.
The eastern roof bay was treated as a canopy of honour and has traces of
original colour. C19 scissor-braced rafter roof to chancel. No chancel arch.
Simple angle piscina in south sanctuary. Well-preserved C15 font with carved
bowl and 4 lions against the stem. Early C17 carved pulpit on C19 scone base.
The nave has a set of C19 poppyhead benches.
