Inside All Saints Church, Sutton Benger

Recent Photograph of Inside All Saints Church (Sutton Benger)

This very wide nave may be an incorporation of a former north aisle, as the chancel is off centre, and in alignment with the Victorian south arcade. The latter replaced an earlier Doric arcade apparently, but it is also not in line with the tower, which is also off-centre to the nave and seems to have been built into it, with a small thin arch connecting it to the arcade.

The north wall of the nave has handsome Perpendicular square-headed windows, possibly reset from the nave north wall or if in situ the former aisle wall. Perpendicular too, and vaulted with cross ribs is the south porch.
