Wetheringsett All Saints Church
Wetheringsett All Saints Church
The lovely flushwork and niches on the six tower buttresses are striking. The west end of the tower is open to the elements as at nearby Cotton. Not a galilee, but perhaps originally serving a similar purpose. The clerestory has 16 windows which illuminate the elaborately carved timbers of the lovely nave roof. Simply carved tie-beams support king and queen-posts; the chancel roof is panelled. The tower and nave were built at different times, but it is not certain which came first, probably the nave. The 13th century south doorway is earlier than any part of the tower. In the chancel, a very small piscina is flanked by sophisticated triple seat sedilia. There is an earlier and unusual angle piscina in the vestry of all places, north of the chancel. Perhaps indicating that this was once a chapel.
