Listing Text



Parish church. Cll, C15, early C18, & restoration of 1882. Aisleless nave of
Cll and chancel of C15, with later windows, vestry north of the chancel and a
south porch of 1882; detached timber-framed bell-cote. Plain exterior with a
tile roof, walls of flint (some herring-bone) with stone (some brick) rubble
added to the restored part, stone dressings. A high window above the south
porch, now filled, has thin voussoirs of early Romanesque style, and a tall
north door to the nave (also filled) is similar: a high narrow round arched
window remains in the west gable: a 2-light Perpendicular window is on the south
side of the chancel and the main nave windows are Victorian Perpendicular: the
west window is plain on the outside and perpendicular within: the chief feature
is the east window of 1723, of Venetian form with an Ionic Order of square
columns (inside and out). Within, the restoration of 1882 is expressed in the
chancel arch and a tall arch to the vestry, but there is the reveal of the Cll
window on the south side of the nave, & the stone jamb of a similar window
opposite, as well as the stone frame of the north door. Plain tub font, C18
chancel rails with turned balusters (repeated in the pulpit). There are several
wall monuments, in the chancel of 1793 and 1803, in the nave of 1823, 1826, &
1832; floor slabs' include one in the centre of the chancel of 1757.
