Geocache Description:

A 10ml tube This is a view of the church as another cache is close


The church is constructed in rubble and ashlar, with dressings in Ketton and Barnack stone; it has a lead roof. Its plan consists of a nave with a south aisle, a clerestory, and a south porch, a chancel, and a west tower which is partly enclosed within the nave. The tower is in two stages and stands on a moulded plinth. It has an embattled parapet with gargoyles at the corners, and an octagonal spire. The gabled porch stands in centre of the south aisle, and leads to the Norman south doorway. In the south wall of the aisle are two three-light windows, one on each side of the porch. Along the south wall of the clerestory are four two-light windows. The chancel contains two two-light windows dating from about 1330, and a south doorway. Inside the church, there is a four-bay arcade carried on octagonal piers. In the chancel is a 14th-century piscina, and a three-seated sedilia. There is another 14th-century piscina in the south aisle. The font dates from the 16th century and consists of an octagonal bowl in Ketton stone on an octagonal stem, standing on a chamfered base. Its oak cover dates possibly from the 17th century. Near the south door is a 12th-century stoup. Also in the church are memorials from the 17th century, the oldest being dated 1640
