HADSTOCK BARTLOW ROAD 1. 5222 (south side) Church of St Botolph TL 5544 27/366 21.2.67


2. The walls of the present nave and north transept are basically of late Anglo Saxon date and there is evidence to suggest that this was the minster church built by Canute after the battle of Assandun in 1016. It was built on the remains of an earlier Anglo Saxon church, possibly belonging to the monastery founded by Abbot Botolph in the year 654. The nave has 4 original C11 double- splayed windows intact (originally there were 6). The north door and its stone surround with "honeysuckle" carved ornamentation on the arch and imposts is of the early C11 but was rebuilt in its present position later in the C11. The west door is also probably of similar date. The south doorway was inserted in circa 1200 (now blocked). The south transept was rebuilt in the late C14 and in the C15 the west tower and north porch were added. The chancel was rebuilt in 1884 by William Butterfield. The fittings include a font with a C14 bowl on a stem and base which is probably of Saxon origin. The font cover is C17-C18. There is a rare C14 or C15 oak lectern with cable moulding. The screen with carving of fox and geese on one panel is C15. There are some C15-C16 oak benches (restored in the C19). Graded for its architectural and historical value.
