The Interior of the Church of St Botolph, Skidbrooke
If you don't know anything about this building, come across it and decide to look inside, it may come as quite a shock. Although, as far as I am aware, still consecrated, the building is completely devoid of all the trappings of a church. It's now left as cover for birds and bats and any other wild animal that wishes to enter.
Looking, then, from the tower to the large nave, we see the north arcade and aisle, and the chancel. To the left of the chancel arch is what appears to be a blocked up window. To the right of the chancel arch is something else, which Pevsner, in his Lincolnshire guide, can't make out. The tall recess has a protruding stepped base, much like the bottom of a buttress. The recess extends upwards, all much the same width as the base, as if it was a supporting buttress that was then taken out after the building of the church, when it had served it purpose. Go and see for yourself and see what you make of it.
