Inside All Saints Church, Down Ampney

Recent Photograph of Inside All Saints Church (Down Ampney)

Inside are transitional arcades with painted decoration. It is however over-restored and the transepts and chancel are virtually rebuilt. Some high-quality fittings include an ornate pulpit and rood screen of c1900. Some good monuments include a 14th century purbeck marble cross-legged knight, not quite paired with the stone effigy of a lady under an ogee arched canopy in the south wall of the south transept. There is a big standing “kneelers” monument in the north transept, with two nights facing each other over a prayerdesk.
