St Andrew

 

The church of St Andrew is Grade II listed and dates back to the C13th. It retains a number of medieval features including the early C14th west tower with its decorated tracery in the belfry openings. It was extensively restored and extended in the 1860s and 1870s, with its high quality workmanship. The nave and south aisle were re-roofed and re-floored in 1862, and the north aisle and organ chamber added. The chancel was also rebuilt. Of particular note are some of the windows. 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 National Churches Trust supported a project in 2015 to reroof the north aisle, north nave and porch and the church was rewired with new heating and light fittings as part of the project. This grant will help fund a survey and percolation test for the installation of a septic tank or trench arch drainage system; and explore design & development for the conversion of the vestry or tower base into a disabled WC and servery.
