Details

GEDDING DRINKSTONE ROAD TL 95 NE 3/64 Church of St Mary - 15.11.54 GV I Parish church, medieval. Nave, chancel and west tower. Flint rubble: upper part of tower in red brick. Freestone quoins: the nave walling is of C11/C12 and has areas of herringbone work. The church is without parapets or parapet gables. Two C12 lancets in the nave, one with shallow carving. The north doorway has C11/C12 jambs, with a C13 hoodmoulded arched head. Much mid C14 alteration: 2-light C14 windows in nave and chancel and a 3-light east window, and plain south doorways. Narrow deeply splayed chancel arch: restored sidelights with pinnacled hoodmoulds on east face. A low-side window in the chancel, square and unembellished. C15 tower with flushwork patterns in the parapets: the upper section is of late C16 or early C17 red brick with simple 2-light belfry windows: the nave face of the tower has buttresses rising from squinches with carved grotesques beneath. The nave has a scissor-braced coupled-rafter roof, with a cornice moulded in the C14 manner. The chancel roof is probably of a similar date, but is ceiled apart from the cornice. Octagonal C14 font with traceried panelled sides. 4 C15 poppyhead benches, and another perhaps C17 and crudely-formed.
