One of those rarities – a seventeenth century church. Conceived as a single cell building with no structural division between nave and chancel and built almost entirely of brick its windows may be a good example of `gothic survival` but there is some debate about their introduction in the nineteenth century. The most famous feature of this church is its one-handed clock but if the visitor manages to get inside they will be overwhelmed by the contents, for this really is a treasure-chest of furnishings and memorials. The stained glass, much by Kempe, is outstanding as is the quality of the woodwork.
