Listing Text

16/1 Church of St Peter and
St Paul
Parish church. Saxon church of aisleless nave and chancel, absorbed by the
formation (c116O) of a north aisle of two bays and a south aisle (late C12), with
several C13 eastward extensions, comprising extension of the Saxon chancel (with
replaced Early English chancel arch) with north and south aisles of three bays, and
later a larger new chancel of three-bays. C13 west tower (substantially rebuilt
1794 after a fire): on its south side a two-storeyed vestry (C15), and a two storey-
ed C13 porch. Walls of flint with stone dressings; stepped buttresses, lancet
windows, some replaced by C15 Perpendicular windows, some flint and stone patterned
walling to the porch. The tower has mixed flint and stone walling with brick
quoins to the upper stages and small corner pinnacles. The interior indicates the
phases of construction; there are remains of the Saxon eaves band and also the
vertical lesesnes, the western part has a wider nave with round arches to the north
side with Norman decoration, and pointed to the south with some dog tooth, both
on cylindrical columns, the central part with its narrower nave (being the former
chancel), pointed arches, cylindrical and octagonal columns with moulded caps, the
chancel with wide splays to the coupled lancets, and squints at each side. The
original west wall of the aisles survives, with Norman window splays, and there are
clustered shafts to the arches between the older and later nave and north aisle.
The base of the pulpit is medieval, and there are several C18 wall monuments as well
as a Royal Coat of Arms of 1953.
