Geocache Description:

All Saints and St. Andrew - Kingston

The cache is not at the published coordinates.


The church of All Saints and St. Andrew is a structure of rubble in the Decorated and Perpendicular styles, and consists of chancel, clerestoried nave, aisles, south porch and an embattled western tower with turret on the north side and containing 2 bells.
The north well of the chancel retains a small recess, probably a reliquary, and on both sides are arches with plate tracery. There is an ancient chancel screen, beautifully carved, and a decorated font with octagonal basin, supported on low shafts with trefoiled arches under crocketed canopies, and a fine old Jacobean pulpit.
The arcades of the nave are Perpendicular: the church chest is of rude construction, with strong iron work: the church was restored in 1895 at a cost of £1,600, and affords 130 sittings. The register dates from the year 1570.
Extracts from Kelly's Directory - 1929.
