2/32 Church of St. Andrew 14.7.55

- II*

Parish church, in an isolated position-off the road. C13 and C14, extensively restored 1868 at the sole expense, and in the characteristic style, of the then incumbent, the Rev. E.R. Benyon. Nave and chancel, south tower, the base serving as a porch, and north vestry; the tower in rubble flint, the nave and chancel mainly in kidney flint, with freestone dressings and quoins. Plaintiled roofs. On the south side of the nave there is evidence of a blocked earlier window, and the rubble is coursed at the bottom of the wall. Simple pointed C13 arch with continuous mouldings to north doorway and 2 lancets on the north wall of the chancel; the remaining window tracery is all Victorian replacement. Early C14 south doorway with continuous mouldings, and on the surrounding arch, which forms part of the north wall of the tower, a number of C18 graffiti. The C14 tower was added on the south, since the west end of the nave is too near the boundary of the churchyard to fit it in on the west. 3 stages; C19 flushwork panels around the base and south doorway; diagonal buttresses; plain embattled parapet. A scratch-dial on a projecting square-set block of stone at the bottom of the second stage of the south-east buttress. Heavily restored interior: roof, benches and font all renewed. But a fine set of late C17 altar rails with barley-sugar twist balusters, and a short flight of steps up to the pulpit with the same balusters. Handsome Baroque pulpit; hexagonal, with panelled sides, winged cherub heads supporting the base, and acanthus-leaf decoration around the top. Said to have come from St. James' Church, Bury St. Edmunds, it has been adapted, with mid-Victorian applied panels in Gothic style and a renewed stone base. Large painted and framed arms of William III on the south wall.
