Listing Text

Church of St Nicholas
TL 42 NE 21/68 21.2.67


A flint rubble and stone building, cruciform in plan, with a nave of mainly
C12 origin but with the remains of Saxon long and short work in the west angle
of the nave. The chancel and transepts are of the C13 but the chancel was
partly rebuilt in the C19. The west tower is C15, plain without buttresses
and with a pyramid roof behind a castellated parapet. The south porch is C19
and there is considerable C19 restoration. The fittings include a good C17
octagonal pulpit. There is a brass of William Turnor (d 1473) and wife and
one of 1607.
The church is sited apart from the present village. Graded for its architectural
and historical value. (RCHM 1).
