7/160 Church of St. Cuthbert
4. 10. 1967

Church, C16th with early C13th remains. Restored 1863/4, and 1909, when the
eastern bay was rebuilt. Pebbledashed rubble with sandstone dressings and
slate roof. Church consists of a nave and chancel under one roof, north
and south aisles, a porch on the north side at the east end of the nave, and
a west tower. The vestry is in the angle between the tower and the north
aisle. The C16th windows are mullioned with double chamfers and round heads
to the lights. The north aisle windows are of 3 lights, with a 2-light
window to the vestry. The south aisle wall is of 4 bays with 2-light chamfered
windows with flush chamfered mullions and round heads. The porch is C19th,
with a 4-centred arched head to the inner door. The tower has diagonal
buttresses and a battlemented parapet. In the west wall is a blocked doorway
with double hollow chamfer, 2-centred head and hood mould. Above is a 3-light
C16th window with hood mould. Bell openings are all C16th, of 3 lights. The
east window is of 3 cusped lights with perpendicular tracery above. Nave has
4-bay arcade with two chamfered orders and octagonal piers. The western arch
and pier of the south aisle, together with the respond, and the western
respond of the north aisle, are probably early C13th: the arch is unmoulded
and the pier of round section. The timber roof is open, with the purlins and
common rafters visible in both the nave and aisles. All trusses have collars
and tie beams except trusses 1 and 2 from the west which only have collars.
Trusses 7 and 8, at the east end, have curved principals. The church retains
box pews in the nave and north aisle, with similar pews in the south aisle of
pitch pine. At the west end of the south aisle are the painted arms of
