STEVINGTON CHURCH STREET SP 9953 (North Side)

26/519 Parish Church of St Mary 13.7.64 GV I

Church. Saxon W. tower below belfry level. Top of tower is Perpendicular. Nave and both aisles are C14, the S aisle being probably earlier than the N. North and South chancel chapels also belong to the C14, although they have since been unroofed and now stand in a ruinous condition. The clerestory was added in the C15 with a fine nave roof bearing figures holding shields with the emblems of the Passion, and also woolpacks with the initials of two merchants. A high Perpendicular screen of one-light divisions is now situated under the tower. The front benches have good C16 poppyheads. Brass of Thomas Salle +1422 is 32" long. His head rests on a large helmet. Victorian restoration work was carried out in 1871 under the guidance of Henry Clutton.
