Memorial to Charles Bertie, St Lawrence, Tallington
Died 1730. His last will and testament decreed that 12 penny loaves were to be distributed amongst the poor of the parish every Lord's Day...Forever!
St Lawrence's church, Tallington
Grade I listed.
This ancient little church built of Barnack rag-stone, shows evidence of its early origin in the long and short Saxon work at the east end of the north aisle and an isolated Saxon stone in the north wall. As the building also contains Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular feature its architecture reflects the changes over 400 years. There are many traces of possible alterations and rebuilding that it has been called a “problem church”. The plan consists of a well-proportioned chancel, small north and south transepts, clerestoried nave with north and south aisles; the latter cut short at the west end to accommodate a large south porch. The western tower, the spire of which was destroyed by a storm on 13th August 1762, houses three ancient bells.
In the south aisle there is the remains of some form of wall seating. There being none in the centre of the nave this may give rise to the saying “the weakest go to the wall”. The inverted piscina appears to be Norman and the font is 13th century.
The last major restoration work was carried out in 1879.
The church was recently internally repointed with pink cement. Decide for yourself whether you like it or not!
