BRAUNSTON HIGH STREET SP5366 (North side) 18/82 Church of All Saints 18/01/68


Church. Medieval origin, rebuilt 1849 by R.C. Hussey. Restored 1874 by W. Butterfield. Sandstone and ironstone ashlar, limestone dressings. Slate Roof. Chancel with south aisle, aisled nave, north and south porches, west tower and spire. Decorated style. 3-windows with flowing tracery in east walls of chancel and south aisle. 2-light windows in side walls. Traceried parapet to nave and chancel. West tower with pinnacles and crocketed octagonal spire. Interior: 3-bay south arcade to chancel, in part C14-C15 has double-chamfered arches and octagonal piers. Perpendicular double-chamfered arch with half octagonal responds between chancel aisle and south aisle of nave. 5-bay nave arcades with octagonal piers. Chancel roof, probably by Butterfield, has timber boards with plate tracery and stencil decoration. Red and grey marble font, probably also by Butterfield. Pulpit c.1880, grey and pink marble. Mosaic saints flanking altar, c.1880. Early C14 stone effigy of a knight, cross legged with a rosette between his feet said to be a member of the de Ros family, lords of the manor from the C12 to Cl6. Circular Romanesque font, weathered, with traces of cable moulding, Head of C14 churchyard cross, has badly eroded reliefs of the crucifixion with figures of a priest and a warrior. Stained glass: south aisle of chancel 1849 by Wailes and in the chancel, 1863 by Hughes. The chancel was said to have been decorated under the supervision of Butterfield in 1874-80 but was redecorated in 1928. A reredos by Butterfield is said to survive beneath the present panelling. Funds for rebuilding the church were raised by a national appeal made by the Rector A.B. Clough, who pointed to the increase in population due to the building of the canals and the need "to extend the means of religious instruction to that benighted class of people engaged in our inland navigation". (Buildings of England: Northamptonshire, p.120; Anon.: Church Guide, 1984).
