6/195 Church of All
31. 8.1962


Parish church, C13 but re-fenestrated and re-roofed in C14. In
early C15 the West tower was inserted into the West end of the
nave. The church was extensively restored and again re-roofed
in 1863. Except for the West tower, the principal building
material is clunch with Barnack limestone footings and quoins.
The West tower is pebblestone with Barnack dressings. It is of
three-stages with a stepped and embattled parapet, two-stage
clasping buttresses and a moulded main cornice with beast
gargoyles at the corners. The sill is splayed. The nave has a
C19 tiled roof carried down over the aisle, obscuring the
original C13 clerestory with its horizontal vesica shaped
windows. All the fenestration of the South aisle has been
renewed in Ketton in C14 style. The South porch is contemporary
with the South aisle and has a two-centred, chamfered arch with
broach stops. In the chancel there are two original windows in
the North wall. One early C13 lancet and a C14 two cinquefoil
light window with foiled head in a two-centred arch. One window
in the South wall has a low side. The North doorway is C14 and
wave moulded. Inside, the church is noteworthy for its clunch
work. The three bay arcade has two-centred arches of two hollow
and broach stopped orders on octagonal columns with capitals of
natural leaf foliage. The carving of the capitals would suggest
a later date than that of the early C13 clerestory. The
responds at the East end of the nave arcade have bell shaped
capitals with similar natural leaf foliage ornament on attached
shafts. In the chancel there is a good late C14 three seat
sedilia in three bays, with subcusped ogee heads with running
foliate ornament, finials and above a frieze of pierced
arcading, all in clunch. The piscina is of similar date and
style. The screen between nave and chancel is C15, restored, in
three bays. On tile right hand side the closed panels below the
dado are early C17. Some of the pews are late C15 or early C16
and the pulpit is early C17 and octagonal, on a modern base.
There are two sqint openings, one on either side of the chancel
arch, and the remains of a rood loft staircase, on the North
side of the chancel arch. Monuments. Alabaster tomb monument
with effigies, in South aisle, reset, Edward Styward, 1596 and
Margaret his wife, early C17. Slab in black marble, in nave,
John Rant, 1696 and Johan, his wife 1663.
