Church of St Mary
the Virgin
TL 6037 34/647 21.2.67


Flint church almost completely rebuilt in 1869-70 by W. E. Nesfield, architect,
who re-used old materials in his reconstruction. He left the lower stage
of the fine C14 south porch and the north arcade of the nave which is circa
1340. He added the gabled framed upper storey of the south porch. The
lower part has massive timbers and the outer archway has a pointed head
formed by 2 curved brackets which are carved and enriched. The side walls
have 3 cinquefoil ogee lights with carving and tracery on the spandrels.
The nave roof is C14, with tie beams, curved braces with traceried spandrels
and octagonal crown posts with capitals and 4-way braces. The west tower,
with castellated parapet, angle buttresses staircase turret and small spire
was added in 1887 by Temple Moore. The church occupies an important position
as the focal point of the village centre. The church reconstruction with
a number of surrounding buildings is an important work of W. E. Nesfield.
Graded for its historical and topographical value. (RCHM 1).
