TF0904 : St Andrew's church, Ufford

near to Ufford, Peterborough, Great Britain

St Andrew's church, Ufford
St Andrew's church, Ufford
Grade I listed.
Mainly early 14th century, but the lancet “lowside” window in the chapel and the triple sedilia are 13th century. The piscina is from around 1300. The tower is probably 15th century. The east wall of the chancel and its windows are 19th century. There is also a 15th C. South Porch.
The chancel is unusually large, almost equal to a nave; here is an elaborate alabaster monument of Bridgett, Lady Carre (1621) erected on the north side by her sister Mrs Quarles who lived in Ufford. It is believed that a chapel north of the chancel was destroyed when this monument was erected as there is, in the appropriate position on the external wall, a gap in the string course.
The chancel roof is oak, high pitched and covered in Collyweston slate and was renewed in 1883.
The nave has identical arcades of 3 broad arches both north and south sides and the font is 15th century.
The funeral hatchments on the wall bear the arms of the Manners family and are probably those of Lord James Manners, the youngest son of the 2nd Duke of Rutland who died in 1790 and whose memorial tablet is on the South wall.
The tower is built of Barnack ashlar, of three stages, divided by horizontal string courses.
