Cranwell, St Andrew

Strange-looking with its seventeenth-century bellcote and a chancel higher than the nave.

Its Saxon origins can be seen in the north east angle of the nave interior.

The Perpendicular chancel was mostly rebuilt by Hodgson Fowler in 1903-4.

Pevsner surmises that the bellcote on the west gable dates from the late 1600s.

The wheel for the bell is placed vertically in an east-west direction, an unusual arrangement.
