St Thomas a Becket's Church

A Scheduled Monument in Grindon, Stockton-on-Tees

Interior of Nave Looking West

Uploader's Comments

The nave dates from c. 1190 and is built in large stone blocks, inner and outer blocks being separated and filled with rubble masonry. There were two lancet windows on the south side of the nave, one on north side and one in the west end. The only one now complete is in the west wall under the bell tower, which contained two bells. These windows all had their heads made from two stones without hood moulds and were 14 inches wide with an internal splay.
