A church filled with wood

Beautiful woodwork fills this twelfth-century church, which was almost entirely rebuilt by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1876 for Allesley Boughton-Leigh of nearby Brownsover Hall. The rebuilding was remarkably sympathetic, for example, the primitive window forms were reproduced or restored, rather than replaced with Scott's favourite Decorated style.

The church has an interesting and idiosyncratic collection of English and foreign carved woodwork, including a lovely organ case, made in 1660 for St John's College, Cambridge.
