Tiny and found amongst farm buildings, St. Edith's church in Coates-by-Stow, has Norman windows in the chancel, transitional doorways and a Perpendicular rood screen complete with loft.

It was restored by one of the more sensitive Victorian architects.

The original Perpendicular screen has survived at Coates.  Even more unusual is the survival of the coving and loft with parapet above.

View from the west of the bellcote.

A west tower was proposed in the early 13th century and the arch linking it to the nave can be seen here in the external wall of the church.
