Church of St Lawrence, Diddington
Church of St Lawrence, Diddington
The older parts of the walls, built in the first half of the 13th century, are of stone rubble mostly plastered; the tower is of red bricks with stone dressings, the south porch of red bricks plastered over, and the east wall of the chancel is of yellow bricks. The roofs are of lead, tiles, and slates.The 16th-century west tower has a tower arch of two orders, the lower one resting on attached shafts with moulded capitals and bases. There is no west door, but a simple three-light window, with a single light window in the stage above it. The belfry windows are two-lights, and the tower is finished with a battlemented parapet with grotesque gargoyles at the angles. The south porch, which is built against the west wall of the south chapel is of the same period.
