Feature Sets

Haslingfield has a spacious 14thc. aisled nave with a clerestorey with 16thc. windows, an aisleless chancel whose walls must be 12thc. even if the present windows are 14thc., and a Perpendicular W tower with a lead spike. The chancel has a N vestry, and there is a curious S porch with a curved roof whose lead is dated to 1746. All except the chancel is ashlar faced; that is of pebble rubble. The 12thc. feature here described is a string course on the N and S wall of the chancel.


The church was given to St Mary's Abbey, York, by Roger de Somery, c.1100.

String courses

The string course is similar in design and block length to reset stones at Great Shelford, although as the latter are set into a wall it is not clear whether they are single- or double-chamfered.
