HAWKLEY UPPER GREEN SU 72 NW 9/9 Church of St Peter and St Paul 23/01/86 II*

Parish church. 1865, on the site of a medieval church, a re-building by Teulon in Neo-Norman style. Nave of 3 bays with aisles, chancel with shorter north and south chapels, the south chapel extended as a vestry, and tall western tower, incorpora- ting the entrance. Polygonal malmstone walls with Bath stone dressings, shallow buttresses at the east and west ends, eaves and plinth plain mouldings, round- headed small windows, plate-traceried circular windows to the east end and in the middle of the aisles. Tile-roof, with gables in the centre of the aisles. The steepness of the roof, with the aisle gables, gives a tall effect to the interior, which has plain Norman features, varied by rich Byzantine capitals. Stone pulpit on columns. Purbeck font (C12) from the old church, a square block resting on a central drum, but lacking the former 4 columns at each corner. In the aisles are Prescription tablets (C19), painted on metal sheets, once fixed above the chancel arch of the old church. The tower is of particular interest, with a semicircular stair turret in the centre of the south wall, shallow buttresses in the lowest part, steep helm roof with copper gargoyles at each corner, and tall doorway above a flight of steps.
