Scottow, All Saints Church, marked on the roadside as "Private Access" I was a bit reluctant to venture further, on sitting waiting I saw a car go on and followed it. The church of All Saint's at Scottow is very impressive, it also has a rood screen and a number of "Mass Dials" The sun must shine more in this county as there are lots of these. The tower is of the 15th century (Perpendicular Period). possibly 1420. The font I loved, it has an octagonal bowl, made of Purbeck marble, each face bearing two pointed arches. It was restored in 1857 and enhanced by a lovely Jacobean font cover which has four diving dolphins supporting the central shaft. The Box Pews are part of the Victorian restoration designed by Butterfield in 1857, The lecturn is from a London church, it came here in 1876. (It's said to be a present from Admiral Lord Nelson who enjoyed visiting his Jovial Durrants friends here, a nephew of the Admiral was vicar here from 1857 to 1872) Scottow, All Saints Church, square west tower, 5 bells, nave with aisles, chanel and south porch. It is a mixture of all three periods of Gothic, the last style predominating. There are several memorials to the Blake and Durrent families, one being for Davy Durrant 1759 by sculptor George Storey. Much renovation took place in 1857 and many of the internal fittings are modern
