OLD NEWTON CHURCH ROAD TM 06 SE WITH DAGWORTH

5/134 Church of St Mary 09/12/55 (formerly listed under Old Newton) GV I

Parish church, mainly mid C14. Flint rubble with some old plasterwork in places; the chancel is partly plastered. Freestone dressings. Chancel roof plaintiled, nave roof lower-pitched and slated. Chancel, north vestry, nave, south porch and west tower. The tower has plain early or mid C14 openings: pointed west doorway and Y-traceried belfry windows. Simple trefoil-headed flushwork panel to the parapets. The nave has good traceried 2-light mid C14 windows of varied forms, some with carved corbels; the south chancel doorway is similar. The chancel side windows were once similar: they were given iron mullions in a Gothick design in late C18, retaining the C14 hood moulds. Late C14 south porch, the doorway with moulded piers and a crocketed ogee-headed image niche above. The inner south doorway has moulded jambs in 4 orders, and the original oak doors with ovolo-moulded ribs. The east window is of C14 origin, with inner shafts, but has a squat segmental-pointed head and straight mullions which must be C16/C17 alterations. On either side of the window are C14 image niches with pinnacles and crockets. Triple mid C14 sedilia and linked piscina, with 4 similar cusped ogee-heads. The vestry has a C14 doorway but appears largely rebuilt. C14 chancel arch has moulded capitals and to the south is a window with inner shafts and a dropped cill. The chancel roof was rebuilt in butt-purlin form in C17. The nave roof was rebuilt in late C18; the lower halves of kingposts and queenstruts are visible beneath the ceiling; at the same time a gallery with plain panelled front and cast iron pillars was introduced at the west end. Good C15 font with emblems of the evangelists around the octagonal bowl, and lions and wild men at the stem. At the west end of the nave are sets of Jacobean benches with scrolled ends. Plain panelled C17 pulpit. Hatchment of George II. Several windows have large fragments of C14 stained glass.
