TS 00 SW NORTH KELSEY MAIN STREET

1/23 Church of 1-11-66 St. Nicholas/or All Hallows (Formerly listed as Church of G.V. II St Nicholas)

Parish Church; C13, C18, all church except tower rebuilt in c.1860; Ironstone rubble with ashlar dressings, red brickwork, fish scale and plain red tiled roof and plain brown tiled roof. West tower, nave, south porch, chancel, north aisle and vestry. The 3 stage tower has a tall plinth with chamfered top, 2 chamfered string courses and parapet moulding with top of parapet in C19 brickwork. There are splayed angle buttresses to the 1st stage only. The bell openings to each face are C13 plain paired lancets. The west doorway is C18 with a semi-circular head with plain imposts; the 6 panelled door is deeply inset. Above the door is a single C13 lancet. The C19 north aisle, has a separate gabled roof from the nave with stone coped gables and red plain tiled roof. The fenestration in Early English style consists of single east and west lights and 2 three light north windows. The chancel with brown tiled roof has a roll moulded string course, a single north light, a 3 light east window and 2 lancets and priests door on south side. The south side of the nave has a red fish scale tiled roof. In the nave wall at high level is a lightly inscribed slab to Richard Todd d.1733. Also built into the wall are the end of a C13 grave slab with floriated cross and 2 pieces of chevron moulding. The windows are a single 3 light and a single 2 light to either side of the porch. Below the 2 light window is a C12 slab built into the wall with lines of incised chevron ornament; possibly part of a grave slab. The south porch and doorway are C19, but built in over the doorway is a C13 small floriated cross in relief carving. Interior: The C13 tower arch is pointed and triple chamfered. The rest of the interior dates from C19, the 4 bay north arcade having pink marble piers. The cast iron screen and pulpit are C19. In the north aisle is a table tomb under an arched recess in Gothic style, to William Chambers d. 1855 and his wife d. 1858. In the chancel is an inset memorial to the Wright family dated 1894. A fine C13 coffin lid carved with a tree with serpent roots can be found on the south side of the nave. It is possible that the church was partly rebuilt with stone from the demolished Church of St. Nicholas at South Kelsey and hence the confusion over the dedication.
