Church of All Saints
18.3.55 and St Mark
- II*
Parish church. C12 nave, C14 chancel. C15 north porch, C16 nave extension,
C18 features, restoration (and vestry) of 1896 (including the external wall
of the chancel). Ironstone rubble walls and buttresses, roughcast to most
of the nave, coursed rubble to the chancel and vestry, with plinth, brick
bands; ashlar dressings. Roof of tiles, with lower courses of stone
slates. Aisleless nave and chancel, north porch and north vestry. The east
window is medieval, the nave has three C18 Gothic trefoil-headed lights, the
chancel with smaller lights (1896) of similar form. The porch is timber
framed on a stone base, with a bargeboard of cusped decoration, and within
is a plain Norman doorway and an old door with medieval hinges. The bell
turret is boarded, with four gables and an octagonal leaded spirelet.
Inside, there is a C14 chancel arch and squints (of uncertain date). The
front is a C12 tub with arcading, one cylindrical stem and square base, with
a later octagonal bowl at the top. There is a two-decker Jacobean pulpit,
with panelled and moulded sides, and a sounding board of the C18. The
medieval roof has exposed arch-braces (once hidden by a plaster barrel
vault, as restored in the chancel), the former carved bosses, removed when
the roof was restored in 1933, being exhibited in a glass case. There are
box pews in pine, of 1841. RCHM
