MUTFORD CHURCH ROAD TM 48 NE 2/36 Church of St. Andrew - - I Parish church. Medieval; chancel restored 1881. Nave, chancel, south aisle, west tower, south porch, west Galilee porch. Flint rubble with some stone and brick admixture; the north chancel is plastered, the north nave and south aisle have remains of plasterwork; stone dressings. Plaintiled roofs to nave and chancel. Round tower, C11 or earlier, with various later blocked lancet windows. Octagonal belfry stage, probably C14: there are openings on 4 faces, alternating with dummy openings in flushwork; crenellated parapet with flushwork panels. Early C14 Galilee porch, much restored: wide segmental entrance arch, almost semi-circular; trefoil-headed side windows. The nave north wall is C12, with 2 2-light Perpendicular windows. Early C14 aisle with 2 restored Y-tracery windows to the south; original 2-light west window with blocked tracery. A one-bay addition at the east end of the aisle was demolished in the early C18 when the east aisle and south chancel walls were infilled and a single mullion and transom window added to each. South porch added 1891. C14 chancel: large 3-light east window, the tracery probably renewed C19; equally large north window, now blocked; both these windows are shafted internally. The east end of the chancel has original flushwork panelling to the plinth. Interior. 4-bay aisle arcade. 6-bay nave roof, probably C17; 4-bay arched-braced chancel roof, largely of 1881. The aisle roof is partly original, the bracing with traceried spandrels. In the north east nave is a semi-circular headed recess with C12 chrevron-moulded arch, perhaps the tomb of a founder of the church. The aisle has a good C14 piscina with a cusped and pinnacled ogee arch enriched with foliage, and set against a canopied background with panelling. Adjacent is a drop-sill sedila. Late C14 octagonal font: 4 lions against the stem and angels on the underside of the bowl, the carved bowl panels now lost; the upper step of the base is inscribed and is enriched with quatrefoil tracery. On the north nave wall is a painting of St. Christopher, now very indistinct. A little C15 woodwork with remains of traceried panels is incorporated in a screen below the tower arch. 4 nave benches have C15 poppyhead ends and 5 others have similar but later ends. Arms of William IV over south doorway.
