Listing Text

(North Side)


Parish church. C12 foundation, C15 alterations and additions, and restorations
and additions of 1887 and 1901. Flint and stone walls, with a tiled roof.
Chancel with north chancel (vestry) of 1887, nave of 3 bays with aisles, western
tower and south porch. Plain exterior, with tiled roof, walls of flint with stone
pieces and stone dressings. The chancel windows are lancets but the aisles have
C15 coupled lights within square frames, with hood moulds terminating in carved
heads. The plain tower, of small dimension on plan, has a top section of 1901,
with crenellated parapat and triple belfry lights. The late C19 porch has a
wood frame on a stone base wall. Inside, the pointed chancel arch (C14) rests
on Norman jambs, with scalloped caps to the nook shafts; on its east side is
an inserted fragment of zig-zag ornament from the original Norman arch. The
nave was rebuilt in the C15, with a centre line north of that of the chancel,
and it is likely that the 3 bay arcade belongs to the same date; it comprises
a massive barn-like timber frame, of octagonal posts and arch braces, the missing
king posts above the cambered tie-beams being replaced by higher collars. There
are floor and wall monuments of the late C18 and early C19, a Perpendicular
octagonal font, and inscribed brass memorial of 1609 (to Dr Reniger), a C19
pulpit, a C17 wood chest, and a cast-iron muniments chest of 1813.
