St Andrews church - mentioned in the Domesday book. It is thought to be isolated due to the fact that Woodwalton Castle was to the north and Sawtry Abbey to the West, with the village settlement to the South. It is constructed of coursed limestone rubble with limestone dressing and has a terracotta tiled roof.

The church is now redundant and has lost lead from the roof and sustained major vandalism, causing there to be no stained glass windows and badly damaged furniture on the inside. It is on the Heritage at risk register. the organ is no longer present as it has been given to St Barnabus Church in Huntingdon.

The Churches foundations are unsettled, which means the tower and the body of the Church are settling at different rates. Serious cracking in the chancel.

On with the pictures. I cant get inside as they shut it up tight until September.

This is my first report so please be kind.
