NOKE SP51SW 6/108 Church of St. Giles 07/12/66 GV II* Church, C13, restored late C16, and C19 by W. Wilkinson. Limestone rubble with ashlar dressings; plain-tile roof. Nave, chancel and south porch. Chancel retains a pair of lancets in the south wall, but the small east window of 2 depressed-arched lights under a label is probably C17. The nave has, to south, two 2-light square-headed C16 windows with uncusped hollow-chamfered 4-centre arched lights and labels; the central porch has chamfered inner and outer arched doorways, the former with a panelled door. The west wall has a lancet and rises to a C19 stone bellcote replacing a former timber-framed turret. The north side of the nave has another arched doorway, now blocked, and a crude 2-light mullioned window. Interior: C14 chancel arch with contemporary trefoil-headed niche to south and a C15 niche to north. 4-bay nave roof with butt purlins, curved windbraces and curved struts is probably C16 and contemporary with the Winchcombe chapel, formerly to the north of the church. Fittings include a C17 pulpit with carved arched panels, and a plain tub font, probably C12/C13. Monuments include a brass to Joan Bradshawe (died 1598) and the mutilated effigy of her grandson Benedict Winchcombe (died 1623), together with several related tablets bearing inscriptions.
