The Church is in the middle of the village, on a hill, and surrounded by a large graveyard, and overlooked by the former Guildhall (dating from the early 1500s), now the Fox & Goose Restaurant.
Inside an elegant single hammerbeam roof surprises you, and there are wonderfully carved pews and benchends.
At the back of the church is a very simple font – no carvings this time.
I wanted to take a closer look at the hammerbeam roof – the care with which the carved decorations were made is extraordinary – after all, no-one would really see them. There was a tiny angel on the tie bar and the ends of the hammerbeams looked as if they had been cut off – I wonder if this had been an angel roof?
The bench ends, poppy head, and carved pews really catch one’s attention!
A beautiful buildings with a peaceful atmosphere, and carvings of real artistry.
