6/1 Church of St Faith

Church. C14 and C15 with some C12 remains. Rubble, mainly sandstone, with
roof of tile and stone slate. Comprises a west tower, nave, south aisle,
north porch, and lower chancel. The west tower has diagonal buttresses
and an embattled parapet. The bell openings are of two trefoiled lights
under a pointed head. The west window, probably re-set, is of three lights
with reticulated tracery. The south aisle is of three bays and has windows
of three Tudor-arched lights under flat heads. The north wall of the nave
has a lancet window towards the east, and a low window with a flat head to
its left. The doorway has a round arch, blank tympanum, angle shafts, and
restored scalloped capitals. The open timber porch is probably C15 and
has a cambered tie-beam with arch-braces which have tracery decoration, and
carved bargeboards. A joint in the north wall of the chancel suggests that
it has been rebuilt. The C14 north and south chancel windows are of two
trefoiled ogee lights under a pointed head with quatrefoil. To the right
of the north window is a priest's doorway with a pointed head. The east
window is of three trefoiled lights under a pointed head with tracery.
Interior: tall pointed tower arch chamfered in two orders. Four-bay arcade
has pointed arches chamfered in two orders springing from octagonal piers
with ill-fitting re-cut capitals. To the west is a fifth, added, bay which
has a pointed arch with plain soffit. The nave and chancel have C19 collar-
rafter roofs with soulaces to the collars. The chancel roof is lower and
there is no chancel arch. The font is Norman and of cauldron shape with
two rows of cable ornament. The wooden pulpit is C17. The east window con-
tains mid-C19 glass.
