Church of St lawrence
SP 1620 NE 3/11 25.8.60
Tower 1784, nave mostly late C19, chancel C14 said to be 1328. The church was
rebuilt except the chancel in 1784 by William Marshall, and the nave almost
completely remodelled from Georgian back to Decorated by Sir T G Jackson, while
retaining the tower and chancel. North aisle 1875, south porch 1890, nave 1891.
Coursed rubble with Cotswold stone roof. Five bay nave with round piers and
pointed arches and a king-post roof. The chancel has features of the C14 with a
roof of 1890, painted by F Howard in 1928. Good late C19 and early C20 church
fittings. Pulpit of 1888. Three stage tower of ashlar, rusticated on ground stage
and with giant Ionic pilaster quoins above. Balustrade, vase finials, lead covered
dome. Lozenge shaped clock on south face dated 1785. Large round clock above.
It is an interesting church of 3 periods, the C18 tower being particularly fine,
and stands in important relationship to the village and the vale as a whole.
Nave and south porch illustrated in The Building News 26 February 1886.
