Interior, St Andrew's church, Stratton
There was a Norman Church originally, the current church was built on top of it, and remains were found in the 19th C. The font is definitely Norman and dates from the 12th century. The North Aisle of the church was under construction in the middle years of the 14th century. The tower and present South Aisle seem to have been built around the latter part of the 15th century although neither can be dated with precision. It has granite piers, whilst the North Arcade uses contrasting Polyphant stone.
The ceilings of the whole building are from the Tudor period, and the chancel was repaired in 1544.
There is a memorial brass to Sir John Arundel who died in 1561, which is now upright against the West wall. He is shown with his wives and children,
By 1888 a major restoration was necessary and some of the stonework of the building was taken down and rebuilt.
There is no mediaeval glass at Stratton. On the sill of the easternmost window of the North Aisle is a crossed legged effigy of an armoured knight in poor condition. This figure is carved in limestone from Somerset, possibly for Sir Reginald De Blanchminster who died in the late 13th century.
