CHURCH OF ST CATHERINE

DESCRIPTION + /

Templar's church from 1150-1312, then Hospitaller's church until the Dissolution, heavily restored between 1852-1883 by Silvanus Trevail. Snecked granite and moorstone with granite dressings. Steeply pitched slate roof with decorative fish-scale slates and slate barge boards. Nave and chancel in one with gabled ends to lower north transept and south porch. Church had fallen into state of decay when fund set up for restoration in 1850. Although the base of the tower may date from the late 12th or early 13th century, the church was almost entirely rebuilt by Silvanus Trevail, who drew up the plans free of charge. There are the remains of a Norman font and much of the earlier dressed stone has been reused in the church and building to the south. Church reputedly rebuilt on earlier foundations with west tower, nave and chancel, north transept and south porch.
