TL 5458 LITTLE WILBRAHAM CHURCH ROAD
(North Side)

17/28 Church of St
John the
31.8.1962 Evangelist

II*


Parish church of early C13 chancel, late C13 nave and north
aisle and a West Tower inserted into the West bay of the nave.
The South wall of the nave, however, is much older, probably C11
or C12 and has a round headed single light window. The church
was substantially restored in C19. The principal material is
clunch, rendered, with limestone dressings to quoins. Embattled
West tower of three stages with restored fenestration and bell
chamber openings. The two windows in the South wall of the nave
are C19 restorations of late C14 or early C15 work. The late
C11 or C12 century window has a splayed sill and moulding of
scalloped pattern to the arch. The South wall of the C13
chancel was rebuilt in 1850 and the whole cased in flint. One
lancet window with a deep slay, in the North wall, survives.
The North aisle has had the roof raised and the fenestration
restored in Early English style in C19. Inside: The West tower
arch and the two arches to the side walls of the tower are of
C13 date. Two centred arches of two chamfered orders, the inner
on half octagonal attached shafts. The North arcade is in three
bays. Two centred arches of two chamfered orders. There is a
squint opening between the North aisle and the chancel and a
rood loft staircase opening South of the chancel arch. The nave
and North aisle retain some of the original stone corbels
carved, which carried the jack posts of the original roof. The
font is C15. Octagonal with the traceried panels to the sides,
foliate bosses to the soffit and an actagonal stem.
