4/65 Church of the Holy Cross

Parish church. Early and late C12, early C13, c133O, C15, and substantial
restoration of 1863. Stone walls, mostly rendered, and a tiled roof, with stone
slates to aisles and porch. Beginning as an aisless nave and chancel, the C12
saw extensions, of aisles to the nave (arcades of 4 bays), of chapels to the
chancel (arcades of 2 bays) and a west tower. The chancel was extended in the
C13, and a C15 vestry was added on its north side. The north chapel was altered
and extended as a coupled chapel (the north side being a chantry) by the action
(1331) of Richard de la Bere of Westcote. Restoration of 1863 included the
replacement of the chancel arch. Plain exterior, with lancets to clerestory and
aisles, Geometrical tracery to the north chapels, and 'restored' traceried east
windows to chancel and south chapel. The tower has a short octagonal spire,
a parapet and corner buttresses; the south porch is a gabled timber frame.
Inside, there are round arches on cylindrical columns to the chancel, pointed
arches (of different height) on cylindrical columns to the nave, with decorative
(north) and scalloped (south) caps. There are piscinas in the chancel and
chapels, arched tomb recesses in the south and north chapels, the north having
a recumbent figure of a 'crusader' knight. There are several floor slabs, some
with inset brasses of the C17, and an alabaster font of 1896.
