St Andrew's


An ancient ecclesiastical centre, collection of 2 Saxon crosses dating from the 9thC, Saxon interior, jacobean pulpit, organ screen and pews.

Grade 1 listed building and Grade 2 listed head stones (2) plus 2 war graves. The AngloSaxon Chronicles record two synods held here at St Aclea - in 782 and 789.  All that remains of the original building is part of the walls of the Saxon nave. 

In 1170 the chancel was completely rebuilt. The pews are the original black oak in the centre aisle, but the doors have been removed. The two pre-Conquest crosses are now displayed at the back of the church were for a time built into a square doorway in the north wall.
