Church of All Saints
TL 53 NE 12/825 21.2.67
Flint and stone church of early C12 origin. The nave is of the early C12.
In the late C13 the nave was extended and the north aisle added (circa
1280), with quatrefoil piers to the nave arcade. The north chapel was
added in circa 1340 and the chancel was rebuilt in the C15. The south
porch was added in the C15. The roof of the north aisle is dated 1534
in one of the traceried spandrels of the braces and the roof of the north
chapel is of the C16. In 1740 the west tower was destroyed by lightning
and was rebuilt, but this later tower was demolished in 1883. There is
some C19 restoration and rebuilding of the chancel and west wall. The
C12 south doorway has 2 orders of columns, some with spiral carved ornamentation.
There are notable late C14 screens between the chancel and nave and north
chapel. The north aisle has a fine brass of Sir John de Wantone (d. 1347)
and his wife Ellen. Graded for its C12 and C13 architractural features
and the C14 screens. (RCHM 1).
