St Andrew Church, Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire



 



Tree: Extended Craxford Family
Notes: The market town of Whittlesey has two medieval parish churches, both of which are still actively in use. Originally the two churches belonged to the two great abbeys in the region: St Mary was under the control of Ramsey, while St Andrew on the western edge of the medieval town belonged to Ely. St Andrew is much smaller than St Mary, but very beautiful. It is built of ochre sandstone and sits snugly against the road. The structure is mostly 13th and 14th century work, but was continually added to and modified through until the Reformation. Many of the most striking details on the exterior are late Perpendicular. The west tower, for example, is richly decorated: there are clasp buttresses on the corners which are decorated at the top of the first stage with a line of battlements, and the parapet of the tower itself is also battlemented with four little pinnacles on the corners. The aisles are broad and battlemented, and there's a nice south porch with more little spires and three niches over the doorway.
