•The church of St Margaret consists of a chancel, clearstoried nave, south aisle, south porch and west tower. The building is of rubbled masonry with plain parapets and large grotesque gargoyles. The roofs of the nave and aisle are covered with lead, and the chancel is covered with grey slates. The tower is surmounted by a short broach spire.
•The church is almost entirely of 15th century date, but it appears to have taken the place of a 13th century church, which seems to have had both north and south aisles. The building was completely restored in 1874, the chancel being rebuilt, but four lancet windows (three on the north and one on the south) which survived from the 15th century were retained. The buttresses amd part of the walling on the west end of the nave may belong to the 13th century, the north buttress indicating the line of the former north arcade. The spire dates from the 1874 rebuild, but it is said to be a copy of a spire which had long before been destroyed. Before this restoration, the base remained covered with a slated pyramidal roof.
“If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication.
