By the late SIR STEPHEN GLYNNE, Bart.



THIS is a very spacious and handsome church, almost wholly perpendicular, the exterior of which is very grand and imposing. It consists of a western tower, a nave with side aisles, and a large chancel, nearly equal in length to the nave, also with parallel aisles reaching to the east end. There is also an additional aisle or chapel on the south of the nave. A south porch has a high peaked roof open to

the interior and a kind of machicolation under it. The whole of the chancel and the south side of the nave are embattled. The south aisle of the chancel has the battlement finely pannelled and crocketed pinnacles surmounting enriched buttresses. The clerestory of the chancel is also enriched with pinnacles. The north aisle of the nave is plain and probably earlier," having two-light windows of decorated character. The tower is fine and lofty, with a pannelled battlement, eight crocketed pinnacles, and double belfry windows, and on the west side a fine perpendicular window of six lights. Most of the windows are of three lights, but one east of the south chapel of the nave is of five, as are those at the east of the side aisles. The east window of the chancel is of seven lights with a transom. In the south aisle, west of the chapel, are square-headed windows in an upper tier over the others, and in each aisle, about the middle, are inserted square-headed windows of the bay form, probably of the time of Queen Elizabeth. The interior, though grand from its space, exhibits coarser work than the exterior. The nave is divided from each aisle by five pointed arches upon octagonal pillars, and the south chapel opens to aisle by three of similar form and character. The chancel 11 Temp. Edw. 1.
