2/36 Church of St. Andrew

- I

Parish church. Medieval; chancel restored 1881. Nave, chancel, south aisle,
west tower, south porch, west Galilee porch. Flint rubble with some stone and
brick admixture; the north chancel is plastered, the north nave and south
aisle have remains of plasterwork; stone dressings. Plaintiled roofs to nave
and chancel. Round tower, C11 or earlier, with various later blocked lancet
windows. Octagonal belfry stage, probably C14: there are openings on 4
faces, alternating with dummy openings in flushwork; crenellated parapet with
flushwork panels. Early C14 Galilee porch, much restored: wide segmental
entrance arch, almost semi-circular; trefoil-headed side windows. The nave
north wall is C12, with 2 2-light Perpendicular windows. Early C14 aisle with
2 restored Y-tracery windows to the south; original 2-light west window with
blocked tracery. A one-bay addition at the east end of the aisle was
demolished in the early C18 when the east aisle and south chancel walls were
infilled and a single mullion and transom window added to each. South porch
added 1891. C14 chancel: large 3-light east window, the tracery probably
renewed C19; equally large north window, now blocked; both these windows are
shafted internally. The east end of the chancel has original flushwork
panelling to the plinth. Interior. 4-bay aisle arcade. 6-bay nave roof,
probably C17; 4-bay arched-braced chancel roof, largely of 1881. The aisle
roof is partly original, the bracing with traceried spandrels. In the north
east nave is a semi-circular headed recess with C12 chrevron-moulded arch,
perhaps the tomb of a founder of the church. The aisle has a good C14 piscina
with a cusped and pinnacled ogee arch enriched with foliage, and set against a
canopied background with panelling. Adjacent is a drop-sill sedila. Late C14
octagonal font: 4 lions against the stem and angels on the underside of the
bowl, the carved bowl panels now lost; the upper step of the base is inscribed
and is enriched with quatrefoil tracery. On the north nave wall is a painting
of St. Christopher, now very indistinct. A little C15 woodwork with remains
of traceried panels is incorporated in a screen below the tower arch. 4 nave
benches have C15 poppyhead ends and 5 others have similar but later ends.
Arms of William IV over south doorway.
