All Saints

rebuilding by James Fowler of Louth in the Early English style.
Greenstone squared rubble and rock faced, with ashlar dressings,
slate roofs. Western tower, nave, chancel with apsidal east end,
south porch. The 3 stage tower in squared rubble has presumably
medieval fabric, but all openings and dressings are from 1875.
Plinth, 3 string courses, ashlar parapet with corner pinnacles
and winged beasts. Corner gabled buttresses rise to top of
second stage. The west window is a single lancet with hood
mould having leafy stops. Above is a plain chamfered
rectangular opening. The triple belfry pointed lights to each
face have detached annular shafts and hood moulds. The rock
faced C19 nave has 3 single chamfered lancets to the north face,
divided by buttresses. The apsidal end has 3 similar windows to
each face. At the west end of the roof are 3 cast iron
decorative panels to the ridge, terminating in an iron cross
fleury. The south side of the nave has 2 pairs of lancets with
common sills. The gabled south porch has a deeply moulded C19
outer doorway with floriate stops and carving to the top of the
chamfered sides and single pointed side lights. The inner
doorway is in a moulded pointed opening dying to reveals and the
plain door has contemporary decorative hinges. Interior. The
C19 tower arch is single chamfered with keeled responds and has
an outer roll supported on engaged shafts, and a hood mould with
floriate stops. In the north wall of the nave is preserved the
late C13 3 bay arcade to a now vanished north aisle with double
chamfered arches, octagonal columns and capitals. Nave and
apsidal sanctuary are undivided but the sanctuary is marked by a
large stone corbel in the form of shield bearing angel to either
side of nave, each supporting 4 annular wooden shafts with carved
leaf capitals which bear a pointed timber box arch having pierced
decoration of alternate lancet and quatrefoil panels. All
windows have engaged annular shafts and moulded heads.
Surmounting the nave wall is a timber frieze of pierced lancets
which continues around the apse with pierced quatrefoil
decoration. The nave roof is scissor braced with diagonal
boarding over the apse, the rafters radiate from a circular
centrepiece. Fittings are all C19 including stone pulpit with
blank arcaded panels, dogtooth decoration and integral lectern.
Circular C19 chalice shaped font, decorated with 4 roundels
depicting scenes from the life of Christ. In the east window is
a small panel of German C17 stained glass.
