CHARLETON CHARLETON (WEST) SX 74 SE 6/3 Church of St. Mary 26.1.67 G.V. II

Parish Church. C15 heavily restored in 1849 - 50. Slatestone rubble walls; windows largely of Caen stone. Gabled slate roofs. Plan: nave, north aisle, south transept, chapel and porch, and west tower. The church appears to be basically C15 throughout but in a heavy restoration of 1849- 50 the nave and aisle were apparently largely rebuilt and most of the windows renewed. Exterior: simple 3-stage west tower with diagonal buttresses. The crenellated parapet is set on a corbel table. 2-light roundarched belfry openings. Simple 2-centred arched west doorway with restored 3-light window above and probably original single arched light on 2nd stage of tower. Rectangular stair projection on north side. North aisle has 4 bays of restored Perpendicular style windows with buttresses between. 5-sided rood stair turret with conical stone roof. C19 vestry under catslide roof on north side of chancel. Chancel has a lower roofline and a restored 4-light window at its east end and 2 2-light windows to the south with a priest's doorway between. Transept has a restored 3-light window on its end wall and there are 2 more on the nave wall which, however, are in a C14 style with reticulated tracery. Large single storey gabled porch probably a complete C19 rebuild with pointed rubble arch. Interior: simple 4-centred chamfered south doorway. 4 bay granite arcade of Pevsner A-type piers with cup capitals and moulded 4-centred arches. Simple 4- centred voussoir tower arch. C19 arches to transept, chancel and chapel. Cinquefoiled piscina in transept and squint to chancel with ogee arch above. On the north chancel is a 2-seat granite sedilia with cinquefoiled heads. Internal walls are rendered and joint-lined apart from the plastered chancel and exposed stonework at the west end. The fittings are all Victorian and the octagonal font, pulpit and desk are also of Caen stone.
