St Andrew's Church :: Shared Description

Grade I Listed Parish Church of St Andrew in Old Church Road. As with many ancient churches, essentially 12th century St Andrew's is a mixture of dates. The upper tower is 17th century with 12th century detailing below. Inside are two 12th century arches with an unusual late Romanesque chevron detail to the chancel arch. The south nave arcade is 14th century but much of the interior, particularly the roofs were extensively restored in the 19th century with the present layout completed in 1904. The date of establishment is unknown and it is thought that it was initially just a small fishermenís Chapel with the current building on Saxon foundations. The Parish Registers go back as far as 1727. The church is the burial place of Arthur Henry Hallam (1811-1833) subject of Tennyson's poem 'In Memoriam A.H.H.' completed in 1849. In 2013 and again in 2015, the church found fame featuring in ITVís award-winning drama Broadchurch as the Parish Church of St. Bede.
