Mainly Norman, with traces of reused Roman brick, St Andrew's has a pretty clapboard bell-turret and porch, and shares a churchyard with the later church of St Christopher. The chancel of St Andrew's is fifteenth century as are the belfry timbers, and there is a fourteenth-century octagonal font. Some interesting memorials include two sad inscriptions dated 1614, in memory of children of the Rector.

  • Access information
    On-street parking available. Small ramp leading up to porch, with another step leading into the chancel.
  • Facilities & Hire
    Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
