St Andrew

 

A grant to help fund urgent repairs to keep the building weather-tight. The building was also to be re-wired and the power supply will be buried to meet health and safety legislation. The church of St Andrews dates back to the 13th century. It retains a number of medieval features, including the early 14th century west tower with its decorated tracery in the belfry openings. It was extensively restored and extended in the 1860s and 1870s, with high-quality workmanship. A vestry window is dated 1579 and shows the royal arms of Elizabeth I. The Victorian east window, designed by Arthur Moore, is described by Pevsner as "one of the most beautiful of its time in England". The church is increasingly used for community events including music and choral concerts, small social events and displays of village life and archives.
