Corringham

Corringham, Lincolnshire.

The Church of St. Laurence.

 

A plain long village street, with many recent in fills of housing, leading up to the Church of St Laurence. There is also a Timbered Old Hall Farm surrounded by a moat.

St Laurence’s church with a typical two stage 11th century tower. The twin bell openings are the addition during the "Restoration" by Bodley & Garner in 1882-4 (or perhaps I was quite right when I first put down Rebuild!!!

This church is particularly rich in its stained glass content. In the north transept are a pair of windows "Probably" by Wailes, whilst in the south transept the east window is a typical example of an early Kempe (1884) Jesse Tree.

The chancel east window and two south windows are also by Kempe, as also are the south aisle east window and the lancet in the tower. Look for the early logo shields!! There are also a number of wall tablets.
