Church Loft

Church Loft was built in the 15th century, pilgrims stayed in here as a guest of the church. Since then it has been the village jail, stocks, and recent years a venue for events.

The building is timber framed, with later brick in fill, and the upper floor over sails both front and rear. The left hand side is a arch to Church Lane and contains the Village lock-up and whipping post.

The Church Loft has a bell turret, and a particularly fine clock (dated 1668) overhanging the street. The clock mechanism remains within the Church Loft. The clock was restored in 2003. You can now hear it chime again.
