4/4 Church of St. Thomas
of Canterbury


Parish church. Of early medieval origin, mainly a rebuild of 1875 to the
design of William White, with a western tower of 1898. Single cell, with a
small apse (on old foundations), a north transept, north vestry at the west end,
and south porch. Plain tile roof overall, with a lower apse roof of 5 hips
above a semi-circular eaves. The walls are of coarse flints with 2 thin
horizontal bands of tiles, stone chequer pattern in the upper part of the apse,
stone dressings; buttresses, plinth, coupled windows (one triple) with
cusping and plate tracery, and 2 very small apse windows. The east gable (an
early fragment) has a coupled opening with round arches on simple impost blocks
of early Romanesque form. The tower is of stone, with flat corner buttresses,
an octagonal stair turret at the south-west corner, and a shingled broach spire.
Within, the church is plain: in the apse the south window is set within a
2-arched arcade; the chancel arch (in the very thick east wall) is pointed,
with impost blocks, the tower arch has many mouldings, merging with the jamb,
the inner mouldings finishing on carved brackets. The chief feature of the
church is a lead font (probably early C17), being a tub on a C20 fluted wooden
base, and having raised cast ornament, of fleur-de-lys, thistle and rose.
