St. Andrew's, Wormingford

St. Andrew's, Wormingford
The ancient parish of Wormingford stands high above the south bank of the River Stour, 10 km north- west of Colchester and 13 km south-east of Sudbury, Suffolk. The parish church stands near the crest of a steep hill, which crosses the Stour at the bottom and runs north to Arger Fen. It is built mainly of flint rubble and brick. Some of the bricks and roof-tiles are Roman, probably from a local villa or Colchester.

St Andrew's has a Norman west tower with original windows and bell openings and a Norman nave with one blocked south window. The North Aisle and windows we added in the early 14th Century. At the same time the chancel was rebuilt and a new arch installed. A century later the south porch was constructed. A brick parapet and pinnacles were added to the tower in the 17th century after an insecure spire was removed.

A major restoration by the Chelmsford-based architect Frederic Chancellor was effected in 1869-70. The seating was increased from 215 to 263, the clerestory was removed and the roofs were renewed.

On an artistic/literary note, the tombs of John Constable's Uncle Abram and Aunt Mary, as well as several cousins can be found in the north-eastern end of the graveyard. Farther along are the graves of the painters John Nash and his wife Christine Kuhlenthal, who lived at Bottengoms Farm in the village. The Farm is now owned by author Ronald Blythe of Akenfield fame, who is a lay reader at St. Andrew's.

Your processing has the church appearing in pristine condition Bruce. It is so neat and tidy that one could assume it is a royal church.
