Details

SU 6415 HAMBLEDON CHURCH LANE 16/1 Church of St Peter and St Paul I Parish church. Saxon church of aisleless nave and chancel, absorbed by the formation (c116O) of a north aisle of two bays and a south aisle (late C12), with several C13 eastward extensions, comprising extension of the Saxon chancel (with replaced Early English chancel arch) with north and south aisles of three bays, and later a larger new chancel of three-bays. C13 west tower (substantially rebuilt 1794 after a fire): on its south side a two-storeyed vestry (C15), and a two storey- ed C13 porch. Walls of flint with stone dressings; stepped buttresses, lancet windows, some replaced by C15 Perpendicular windows, some flint and stone patterned walling to the porch. The tower has mixed flint and stone walling with brick quoins to the upper stages and small corner pinnacles. The interior indicates the phases of construction; there are remains of the Saxon eaves band and also the vertical lesesnes, the western part has a wider nave with round arches to the north side with Norman decoration, and pointed to the south with some dog tooth, both on cylindrical columns, the central part with its narrower nave (being the former chancel), pointed arches, cylindrical and octagonal columns with moulded caps, the chancel with wide splays to the coupled lancets, and squints at each side. The original west wall of the aisles survives, with Norman window splays, and there are clustered shafts to the arches between the older and later nave and north aisle. The base of the pulpit is medieval, and there are several C18 wall monuments as well as a Royal Coat of Arms of 1953.
