  • Description (click)

    The church of ST. MARY THE VIRGIN consists of a chancel 38 ft. 8 in. by 16 ft. 5 in., central tower 11 ft. 6 in. by 13 ft. 8 in., nave 50 ft. 9 in. by 24 ft. 6 in., north transept 20 ft. 1 in. by 30 ft. 4 in., and south transept 12 ft. 3 in. by 18 ft. 5 in. This church has been very largely restored, both in the middle of the 19th century and in recent years; it is of a curiously irregular plan, and, though showing no details older than the 14th century, is probably of considerably earlier origin.

    All the windows are new, and are said to be copies of the originals. The east window is of three cinquefoiled lights with moulded jambs and arch and flowing tracery. In the north wall is a wide-arched recess, a poor modern imitation of 14th-century work. There is a small vestry on the north side of the chancel, lately rebuilt, and a three-light window under which is a door with jamb shafts and moulded arch. In the south wall of the chancel are an arched recess, of like dimensions to that in the north wall, but without crockets or pinnacles, two square-headed three-light windows like that in the opposite wall, and a plain chamfered piscina and sedilia, having its label stopped on heads. The chancel arch consists of two chamfered orders dying into the responds. The nave has no aisles and has been entirely restored, having in the north wall two three-light windows with net tracery in the heads, and two similar windows on the south side; there is a plain modern north door with a stoup on the east side of it, and square buttresses in two stages about the centre of the nave on each side, built to support the old walling before the restoration. The west window has three trefoiled lights with net tracery, and over it is a circular window with flowing tracery. The south porch has been rebuilt, the inner doorway having a 13th-century moulding restored and a label with head stops. There are diagonal buttresses in two stages at the west end. There is a large north transept with the original parapet and gable cross, now used as a mortuary chapel, the door of which was given by the parish as a memorial to the Hon. and Rev. Edmund Tudor St. John, who died in 1884. The interior has been quite recently renovated; the east wall contains two new two-light windows with flowing tracery, and there is a similar window in the west wall. There are two square buttresses in two stages at each angle, and a three-light window with moulded jambs and flowing tracery in the north wall. The south transept is now used as an organ chamber, and has a new three-light window with tracery of 14th-century type; there are two square buttresses at each angle; the transept arch into the tower is of two orders with wave mouldings resting on semi-octagonal shafts, capitals and bases. The 14thcentury central tower was restored in the middle of the last century, when a new and unsightly parapet was put on. In each face of the tower are two trefoiled lights side by side, and there are old gargoyles at each angle. All the interior woodwork of the roofs is modern.
