All Saints Church, Standon

Recent Photograph of All Saints Church (Standon)

There are some odd features in the nave which has examples from all periods from the 12th century to the 15th. The chancel seems to be entirely 19th century and dull in comparison. The 14th century tower seems to have been built into an earlier and wider nave, and inside is a tall Norman doorway masquerading as the west bay of the north arcade. There is little else of note except two halves of an alabaster effigy set into two rectangular recesses in the north chancel wall.
