Listing Text


Church of All Saints
TL 02 NW 22/45 3.2.67


Rubble and ashlar walls, tower of chequered flint and Totternhoe stone. Some fine
Early English work in 5 bay north arcade with octagonal piers and stiff-leaf capitals.
South doorway of slightly later date. Chancel and south aisle are early C14 and
so is a piscina with a carved ogee arch. The tower was commenced late C14. This
now looks strange since the top part collapsed in 1889 and has never been rebuilt.
There are elaborate C14 wall paintings - aisle walls have representations of figures
in canopied niches; nave walls have armorial scrolls. South aisle tomb of Sir
Nigel Loring (hero of Conan Doyle's 'The White Company'). Similar north aisle
