(Mortuary Chapel))

-- II*
Chancel of former parish church, now disused. C12 core with early C14
alterations. Flint rubble with remains of render; stone dressings. West end
of C19 red brick. Plaintiled roof. To north west, a C12 lancet window and a
larger trefoil-headed lancet adjacent. South wall has square-headed C15
window of 2 lights and a simple early C14 Priest's doorway. Blocked window to
south east, the splay visible internally. East end rebuilt c.1300 with a Y-
traceried window. At west end, small portions of nave walls have been
retained as buttresses. Interior. Coupled-rafter roof with straight collar
braces and ashlar pieces: a few replacement timbers, otherwise medieval. 2-
centre arched piscina with credence shelf. Small trefoil-headed niche to
north of east window. On west wall, Arms of George III (very faded) and
framed C18 copies of the Lord's Prayer, Commandments and Creed. To each side
of east window are very faint painted panels which contained the Creed and
Lord's Prayer; these are probably early C17. Effigy brass to Alexander Newton
(1569). This was superseded by a new church in 1858, into which the nave
doorways were incorporated (qv Item 1/2). It was latterly used as a cemetery
