Our Building

Listed Grade I. (Historic England List Entry Number: 1317573). A church built in Clunch and Fieldstone cobbles under tiled and leaded roofs although some parts have rebuilding in brick and Ketton stone. The principal building phase is C12 although little remains and late C13. The rather grand chancel with its piscina, aumbrey and its roof was rebuilt in the late C14. The south porch has had C19 'restorations' along with the north Aisle. The clerestory is C15 and the Nave roof is a reconstruction from 1600. There is a wall monument to Jeremias Radcliffe , 1623, of painted clunch (he was one of the team that translated the bible into the so called 'King James version). The font is C13 and remains of a stone reredos of a crucified Christ with Mary and John at the its foot was discovered in the C19 'restorations'.
