Church History Overview Mark Bailey
St Andrew’s Church is generally regarded as one of the finest parish churches in England and recorded by Simon Jenkins in his book “England’s Thousand Best Churches” (Penguin 1999) as one of the thousand best churches in the country.
The Church is particularly distinguished by four main architectural features:
The main nave and chancel ceiling,
The impressive 135ft stone tower,
The quality of Lane’s aisle and its fan vaulted roof,
The splendid decorated continuous width rood screen.
