Geocache Description:


A 35mm pot, please do not park on the road, parking cords are listed

•The church of St Swithin consists of a chancel, nave, north aisle, south aisle, west tower and south porch. The walls are of stone dressings and the roofs are covered with lead.
•The church is mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086, but the earliest parts of the present building are the later 13th century arcades. During the 14th century, the church seems to have been largely rebuilt, commencing with the chancel which was rebuilt and widened to the north in the first decade; the aisle walls in the middle of the century; the clearstory added to the nave about the same time; and the west tower and the south porch at the extreme end of that century.
•The northern part of the east wall of the chancel and the western end of the north aisle were rebuilt in the 15th century. The roof of the nave was reconstructed in 1657, that of the north aisle in 1638 and the south aisle in 1785. The church was restored in 1895 when the walls were thoroughly repaired and pointed, and the roofs re-leaded.

“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.
There is also a Church Micro Stats page found via the Bookmark list”
