Little Snoring Saint Andrew's Church, On my way to Great Snoring I came across this lovely little church, little did i know just how lovely it was and its significance with me. I had my father's R.A.F. records and knew he was based at Little Snoring, unsure on the day which Snoring it was he was stationed at, I was pleased to see it was this by his records. Saint Andrews, stands on a high hill out side of the main village. It has many records inside to the old servicemen including one of of 1944-45. The time my father was there. Little Snoring Saint Andrew's Church, This Saxon, round towered church with unique south doorway consisting of three arches — the innermost being a plain Norman round arch, outside this, according to Pevsner, the stones of what had been a broad round arch were reassembled, including the zigzag at right angles to the wall, to produce a narrow, sharply pointed arch with a lion's head at the apex, it is carried on Early English (1250) capitals decorated with foliage.
