Description

STEVINGTON CHURCH STREET
SP 9953 (North Side)

26/519 Parish Church of St Mary
13.7.64
GV I

Church. Saxon W. tower below belfry level. Top of tower is Perpendicular.
Nave and both aisles are C14, the S aisle being probably earlier than the N.
North and South chancel chapels also belong to the C14, although they have
since been unroofed and now stand in a ruinous condition. The clerestory was
added in the C15 with a fine nave roof bearing figures holding shields with
the emblems of the Passion, and also woolpacks with the initials of two
merchants. A high Perpendicular screen of one-light divisions is now situated
under the tower. The front benches have good C16 poppyheads. Brass of Thomas
Salle +1422 is 32" long. His head rests on a large helmet. Victorian
restoration work was carried out in 1871 under the guidance of Henry Clutton.
