All Saints Church, Enford
All Saints Church, Enford
The oldest surviving portions of the present building are the walls and pillars of the nave, and the remnants of an early church arch. The chancel arch is late Norman, as is the doorway to the south porch. In the 13th century the style of architecture changed rapidly, as the heavy Norman design gave way to lighter, more graceful lines.
During the Middle Ages and for some time afterwards the church was almost bare, with the altar table being the only piece of furniture. The floor would have been strewn with rushes, and often scented herbs, which were replaced twice yearly.
The church also housed the local school from as early as 1552 to the late 19th century, latterly in the north aisle.
