TQ 61 SE ASHBURNHAM CHURCH ROAD

28/15 Parish Church of St Peter 3.8.61 I

Chancel with north and south chapels, nave, north porch and west tower. The tower is C15. The remainder of the building would seem of the same date but was actually rebuilt by John Ashburnham in 1663 and is one of the best examples in England of the Gothic style continuing after the Gothic period was over. The interior retains all its contemporary C17 fittings: the iron screens to the chancel, chapels and tower, the communion rails, pulpit, former reredos of the ten commandments and the gallery in the tower supported on wooden Ionic columns. C18 box-pews. The north chapel is the Ashburnham mausoleum chapel and contains two very good C17 family monuments, one by Bushnell. The south chapel formerly contained the Ashburnham family pew as a gallery but this has now been blocked off as a room for private prayer.
