Details

1. 5125 CHALGRAVE Church of All Saints TL 02 NW 22/45 3.2.67

I

2. Rubble and ashlar walls, tower of chequered flint and Totternhoe stone. Some fine Early English work in 5 bay north arcade with octagonal piers and stiff-leaf capitals. South doorway of slightly later date. Chancel and south aisle are early C14 and so is a piscina with a carved ogee arch. The tower was commenced late C14. This now looks strange since the top part collapsed in 1889 and has never been rebuilt. There are elaborate C14 wall paintings - aisle walls have representations of figures in canopied niches; nave walls have armorial scrolls. South aisle tomb of Sir Nigel Loring (hero of Conan Doyle's 'The White Company'). Similar north aisle monument.
