Briston All Saints Church NR24 2LE


Briston All Saints Church, this old church dates from before Edward I 1272-1307 and has many retaining interesting features. One of which is a metal cello made in the 17th century by a local blacksmith. Near Melton Constable, this church has no tower, a nave, chancel, and vestry, The round tower was taken down as unsafe in 1785. there is a western turret with 1 bell. The style is mainly Transitional Decorated and Perpendicular. Most of the intenal fittings are modern. The small church formerly had a north aisle, and the pillars and arches remain in the north wall of nave. Modern roofs and fittings and a plain 14th century font with traceried bowl. Nice 14th century sedilia and piscina with clustered columns, ogee arches, cinquefoiled with floriated terminals. the piscina has traceried head and solid stone credence shelf. Plain iron-bound chest. The chancel has a pronounced "Weep" to north. The chancel arch is askew and the nave obviously set out at right angles to this. In my opinion, poor workmanship (remember the tower falling and was dismantled)
