Depicting a ship in sail.
The church of All Saints > Link
was extensively restored during the 19th century because the building had become quite dilapidated. The south door with its wicket gate, however, dates from the 15th century > Link
. A small carving at its top depicts a fox preaching to geese. The restored hammerbeam roof rests on corbels rescued from the old building > Link
and there are a number of other medieval survivals, perhaps the most noteworthy being the carved bench ends with poppy heads such as the depictions of three passing vices (gluttony: a drunkard > Link
- anger: man holding a knife > Link
- sloth: a man praying the rosary but falling asleep > Link
- all standing in the open jaws of hell), a mermaid, a chalice, a variety of animals, a ship in sail (seen here) and a post mill > Link
. Only the rood screen dado has survived but it is one of only a few examples depicting not the 12 apostles but Old Testament prophets with scrolls > Link
. The C15 font is carved with shields > Link
. Of interest are also a few small brasses, C17 ledger stones > Link
and a fragment of Elizabethan text on the west wall. The church is open every day. For more information see: Link
The model of a windmill > Link
in a glass display case at the west end of the south aisle shows the mill which once stood by the harbour until it was destroyed in 1929 in galeforce winds.
