4/49 Church of All
G.V. II*

Parish church; C11, C12 early C13, late C13, restoration 1871.
Coursed ironstone rubble with stone coped slate roofs. Nave with
western bellcote, chancel, south porch. The west end has a plain
roll moulded plinth and a single C13 lancet with hoodmould. At
the top of the gable is a further roll moulding from which the
late C12 chamfered bellcote springs. It has worn openings which
appear to have been pointed and a rectangular mid wall shaft and
imposts. On top of its gable is a C19 cross fleury. The gable
has been raised at eaves level and the steeper pitch of the
original nave roof can be seen. In the north wall the C13
blocked 4 bay arcade is visible. Inserted in the blocking are 4
single C19 lancets. Above the 1st 3 arches are small quatrefoil
clerestorey lights, that on the left side being C13, the other 2
are C19 copies. The chancel was largely rebuilt in 1871 although
the lower fabric is medieval. The north window is a single
lancet, the east window a flat group of 3 stepped lancets and the
south side is as the north. The south side of the nave has 2
stepped buttresses and 2 C13 lancets with 2 quatrefoil
clerestorey lights above, one C19 the other C13. Beside the C19
added porch, is one half of a door arch and impost, cut by the
early C13 lancet. As the actual south door is early to mid C12
it seems likely that this plain arch represents a C11 south door,
possibly of Anglo Saxon origin. The south doorway has one order
of columns with scalloped capitals, an outer band of double zig
zag to the arch with a cross motif hoodmould and plain square
inner arch. At the west end of the south face can be seen the
remains of the C12 corbel table which was largely removed when
the clerestorey was added. Interior; the 4 bay blocked north
arcade has C13 octagonal columns with the 2 eastern capitals
having nail head decoration and double chamfered arches. Between
the arches heads from the C12 corbel table have been set, 2 above
each column and there a further 4 corbel heads set in the south
side. The chancel arch dates from 1871 and is in the Early
English Style. In the chancel north wall, a C19 aumbry has been
set with a fragment of an Anglo-Saxon cross-Shaft with interlace
decoration at the back, and 2 C12 decorated slab fragments to the
sides. The stained glass in chancel and quatrefoil lights dates
to 1875. The stone pulpit and timber pews are C19, but 2 bench
ends in the chancel are C15 with poppy heads. The chest dates
from C17.
