10/12 Church of St Lawrence 17/11/66 II

Parish church. Medieval origins, entirely reconstructed in 1826-7 by James Trubshaw Junior. Sandstone ashlar (with especially large blocks below the plinth to nave and chancel), slate roof. Classical style; nave and chancel in one, west tower. Tower: the basic fabric is probably medieval (see the roll-moulded plinth and the tool marks on the masonry), but the windows, along with the buttresses, parapet with cornice and corner obelisks, are all of 1827; round-headed west window with raised keystone and imposts has cast-iron Y-tracery with transoms; above is a narrow rectangular slit (?medieval) and to the belfry stage 4 openings with plain Y-tracery and wooden louvres. Nave and chancel in one. The west wall on the south side (which protrudes slightly from the tower) appears to be medieval, but all the rest is Trubshaw's work; 5 bays, round-headed windows with tracery as in the west window; in the second bay from the west (south side) a plain pedimented doorway; the East window is different - a blocked tripartite opening with lunette above; moulded eaves cornice with obelisks at the corners and a small cross on a globular base to the east gable. Interior: round tower arch (1827) filled by organ. Good C17 pulpit with blank arches and rosettes above; some C17 woodwork is also incorporated in a prayer desk on the north side of the early C19 altar rails; tub-shaped font (C12?) on a late C19 base; all..the other fittings are of this latter or more recent date. Monuments: brass tablets on the north wall to Francis Carlose (died 1722) and Elizabeth Lander (died 1764). B.O.E., p.96.
