TM 15 NW
3/17 Church of All Saints
Parish church, medieval with major restoration of 1862 for the widow of Sir
William F.F. Middleton, Bart. of Shrub land Hall, Barham, in his memory. Nave
of random flint rubble with freestone dressings. Chancel timber-framed, the
framing in close-studding and fully exposed with plaster infill. Concrete
plaintiled roofs with C19 gable crosses; central over the chancel is a timber-
framed bell turret of 1862, with octagonal roof. Nave, chancel, south porch:
the north vestry was added 1862. The chancel, probably of early C15, is a
unique example in Suffolk with timber-framing: very plain workmanship in the
local vernacular style. A 2-centred arched doorway, square-headed windows
with traceried heads, arch-braced cambered tie beams, canted roof with boarded
soffit. The structure was entirely reassembled, and many components renewed,
in 1862. Other restored features of early C15 (or possibly late C14) include
north and south nave doorways and chancel arch. The nave was remodelled 1862
in the Decorated Gothic style; some C13 or C14 corbel stones are built into
the west wall, one being perhaps a lion's head and the other a wolf's. Fine
early C16 nave roof in 6 bays: two types of truss alternate; hammerbeam
trusses with posts omitted in favour of strongly curved archbraces; and
trusses with pendant posts having attached shafts, but no hammerbeams. Good
moulding and brattishing to main members, and restored mainly C19 angels.
Early C16 timber-framed south porch, with C19 restoration and flint rubble
infill; some good carving to the arch braces. C18 altar rails. A panel with
the Middleton coat of arms in the chancel. Furnishings of 1862.
