Stokesby Saint Andrew Church, west tower, south porch, nave and chancel. This church is entirely thatched, and has a plain 13th century tower with no butresses. Brick porch and fine ring handle and 14th century ironwork on the south door. Single framed rafter roof of scissor construction. A few nice bench ends with grotesques, one of a woman kneeling at her prayer desk woth rosary and a grauated dropped window sill sedilia. Formerly Stokesby (with Herringby) Stokesby Saint Andrew Church, has a square west tower, 1 bell, nave, chancel and south porch. this church is mainly in the early Decorated style, with some later insertions. The triple sedillia is formed in the sill of the windows. There are several ancient brasses, and evidences of others having been taken away. There are some ancient pews preserved at the west end of the church with good tracery, poppyheads and groteque animals carved on them. Several good mural paintings have been discovered, but most of them have been covered up again. (Why do we do this? We cover up murals that we find and rip out pews that are okay, woodworm can be treated now, to replace by modern chairs that in some cases will have to be replaced in a few years.)
