SOUTH MILTON SOUTH MILTON VILLAGE SX 64 SE 4/126 Church of All Saints 26.1.67 G.V. I

Parish church. C12 origins, rebuilt and enlarged in C13 and C15. Slatestone rubble walls, roughly coursed to tower. Gable ended slate roofs. Plan: nave, chancel, north aisle, south transept and porch and west tower. The earliest features of the church are its C12 font and south doorway, suggesting that the nave dates back to this period. In the C13 the south transept was added.There may also have been a north transept but this was replaced by an aisle on that side in the C15. The tower probably dates from the same period. Lastly the porch was added, its very simple construction makes dating it difficult and it may be as late C17. Exterior: 3 stage crenellated west tower with obelisk finials and setback buttresses. 4-sided stair projection on its south wall. West doorway of roundheaded rubble South Hams type with roll, hollow and roll moulding. Perpendicular 3-light window above with granite mullions. North aisle is of 6 bays with buttresses between 3-light Perpendicular windows. Blocked roundheaded north doorway with simple 3-light trefoil headed mullion window above. Rectangular rood stair projection. 3-light Perpendicular window at east end of aisle and similar 4-light east window to chancel which projects slightly from the end of the aisle. On the south side of the chancel is a C20 2-light mullion window and a 3-light Perpendicular window with small roundarched priest's doorway between. South transept has an original 2-light lancet window on its east wall and a 3-light restored Perpendicular one on its south wall. The nave has a modern Perpendicular style window between the transept and the porch which is low and gabled with a crude rubble 4-centred arched doorway. Interior: Porch has stone seats to eitherside. 012 simple south doorway with rubble jambs formed into colonettes which have crudely carved capitals. Projecting imposts above, supporting a round arch of red sandstone. Internal walls of the church are unplastered. 6-bay arcade of Beerstone with Pevsner A- type piers which have foliage carved capitals and 4-centred arches. 4-centred tower arch with double chamfered head. Medieval wagon roofs to nave and aisle with carved bosses and moulded ribs, all painted although the colour is not necessarily early. Medieval rood screen across nave and aisle which has been partly restored and lost its coving. It retains some original colour and the painted figures of saints on the panels. Parclose screen also survives. C12 tub font with cable and chevron moulding and faces carved around it. On the floor at the east end of the nave are a number of C17 and C18 slate memorial slabs.
