3/72 Church of St Dennis


Parish church. C14 nave and chancel with rebuilt chancel and south porch
of 1877-8 when the church was restored (RCHM Vol I, p 209). Sandstone
rubble, coursed sandstone and sandstone dressings, tiled roof. Nave,
west tower, chancel and north porch. West tower has battered base and
three stages with projecting parapet; west side has one central loop to
bottom and first stages; top stage has a single ogeed opening to each face.
Nave: south wall has two re-set ogeed one-light windows, one to the west
and one to the centre, with a 2-light ogeed and trefoiled window under a
square head to the east; the north wall has a 2-light ogeed light to the
east of the porch and a single ogeed light immediately west of the chancel.
The re-built chancel has a single-light ogeed window with a square head on
the south wall; the east window, set between buttresses with off-sets is
of two trefoiled lights under a 2-centred head. North porch is timber-
framed with a quatrefoiled gable, the front posts have pyramidal chamfer-
stops to their bases and carry angle struts rising to an ogee under the tie-
beam; scissor truss roof; three-bay panels to each side with trefoil-headed
openings above former from cusped angle struts. North doorway has 2-centred
head with a label. Interior: chamfered 2-centred opening between tower and
nave; roof of nave has C16 (?) braced collar beam trusses, mainly intact,
except for the three to the extreme east which are restored and one cambered
and chamfered tie-beam. Chancel arch is 2-centred and chamfered with head
stops to label. Chancel has wagon roof, late C19 trefoiled and ogee-headed
piscina with part octagonal drain; opposite on the north wall is a trefoiled
and ogeed niche under a gabled label with a finial at the apex. Font, perhaps
C13, has plain cyclindrical bowl and stem on a late C19 base. The south-
west nave window has a C13 tomb slab with circles and fleur-de-lis motifs
re-used as a lintel. Tower carries three bells, the two eastern ones
apparently medieval with Lombardic lettering; the western one probably C17.
