ST ANDREWS CHURCH

DESCRIPTION + /

Parish Church with a pre-Conquest nave and tower, probably 10th century. Chancel and south transept early 13th century. Alterations 1830 and 1850 by John Dobson. Addition of north transept, chapel, vestry and probably south porch 1871 by William Slater of London. Pre-Conquest fabric heavy roughly-squared rubble with massive quoins, medieval parts coursed rubble, 19th century parts squared tooled stone with tooled ashlar quoins and dressings. Stone slate roofs. Alterations in 13th century style. Cruciform in plan with west tower, north vestry and chapel, south porch.

The tower of St Andrews belongs to a church built about AD 950. A cross shaft, removed not long ago from the tower, shows a crude representation of the Crucifixion, and the rudeness of the work suggest that it is Norse rather than Celtic; it comes from an earlier church built by Bishop Wilfrid. The greater part of the church is 13th century, and it was restored in 1871. Plan of West tower, nave, transepts, chancel and North vestry.
