HAIL WESTON CHURCH STREET TL 16 SE 3/18 PARISH CHURCH 14. 5.59 OF ST NICHOLAS II*

C13 parish church with a C14 timber-framed tower, a unique survival in the county. Both restored in the late C19 when the church was ruinous. Built of pebble-rubble and some stone with limestone and clunch dressings. Plain tiled roof, shingle cladding to tower. Nave and chancel without internal divisions, east and south walls rebuilt in C15. One C13 lancet window in north wall. South and West doorways with stop-moulded jambs and four-centred arches. Nave and chancel roof C15, of four bays with queen posts, has one original carved tie beam, and original deeply moulded cornice, and embattled wall plate and side purlins. Timber framed west tower with timber-framed bell stage, is largely undisturbed except for the first stage where new sills and external buttresses were introduced in C19 and the gable roof replaced by pyramid roof. The original weather- boarding was also replaced with shingles. South porch C19; early C16 poppy-head pews and chancel screen, restored. C13 font with octagonal bowl, late C13 piscina.
