MICKFIELD TM 16 SW 2/144 Church of St. Andrew - 9-12-55 - I

Redundant parish church. Medieval, with major phases of early C14 and early C16. Nave, chancel and south-west tower/porch. Random flint rubble with freestone dressings. Chancel roof plaintiled. Nave roof low pitched and leaded. Parapet gables; the east chancel gable has grotesque carved corbels possible of early C14. Early C14 tower has a deeply-chamfered doorway and two cusped porch side windows; also of early C14 is the moulded inner doorway. The door is original and has a sanctuary ring with a grotesque boss. Other C14 moulded doorways, to north of nave, and to south of chancel (the latter has grotesque drips to the hoodmould). Mediaeval camberbeam roof to nave (possibly late C14, but restored in C19): in 3 bays with chamfered arch braces to each tiebeam, the wallpieces supported by stone corbels with well-carved grotesques. Wide C14 chancel arch with piers and moulded capitals. C14 stoup inside nave doorway. Various detail alterations of c.1500 or early C16: belfry windows with tracery now fragmentary, and tower parapet of red brick; 2-light windows to nave and chancel, some with restored tracery of C19; a cusped piscina in the chancel. Early C16 roof to chancel in 2 bays: arch- braced principals with bracing up to ridge, but entirely without collars. The arch-braces spring from wall-pieces whose lower sections are polygonal and have carved capitals; the cornice is moulded and embattled. Mid C14 octagonal limestone font with simple mouldings. Set of 6 benches of c.1500 now in chancel, with good poppyhead ends, some having animals or turrets attached to the buttresses. 9 marble floor slabs in chancel: one to Peter Preston (1616), wife Thomasin (1617) and son Peter (1631) has had its brass removed, another is dated 1675; the others C18. A slab in nave with brass to Frances Dade (1615); another of 1720. The building was in deteriorating condition at date of survey.
