5/35 Church of St Laurence -


Church. Late C12 - C13 with later alterations and additions, including the tower, probably 1683, but in Gothic style. Heavily restored and extended in 1859. Coursed, squared sandstone. Stone flag roof. West tower, 3-bay nave with south aisle and south porch, 2-bay chancel. The 2-stage tower has battlements, diagonal buttresses and extruded staircase tower to parapet level. 4-light bell openings and window on south side have semicircular heads, stone mullions, with incised decoration in the spandrels. Semicircular hood-moulds. String course at main roof eaves level. The north wall of the nave is of medieval masonry. 3 reset 2-light windows, with cusped tracery and pierced quatrefoil heads, with stepped buttresses between. The south wall, and the south porch, were rebuilt in C19 with one 3-light and one 2-light windows similar to those in north wall. The north wall of the chancel is of medieval masonry, the south was rebuilt in C19. 2 lancet windows in each wall. C19 3-light east window with intersecting tracery. Interior: the nave arcade of circular piers with square abaci is late C12. The pier Lo the east has a crudely carved water-leaf capital. The arches were rebuilt in the C15. C13 chancel arch springs from triple responds, apparently renewed. The centre one is keeled and the grooved square abaci are probably original. Fittings: stone slab in the chancel with a floriated cross carved in low relief, said to be C13. Good C18 wall monuments to both sides of chancel. Medieval font. 1 tower window bears the inscription: '1683. Thomas -, Samewell -, Church wardens', which may refer to the insertion of bell openings and windows in an existing tower.
