St. Andrew, Wheatenhurst, Gloucestershire


The church of St. Andrew, enlarged about 1850, is an ancient building in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave of three bays, north aisle, south porch, and an embattled western tower containing 6 bells, of which two were added in 1889, as also a clock chiming the quarters: the church was thoroughly restored in 1884-5, under the direction of the late Sir A. W. Blomfield M.A., A.R.A. architect, including the erection of a chancel arch, the addition of a vestry and organ chamber, and the reflooring of the interior and reseating it with oak at a total cost of about £2,000: in 1887 the east window was filled with stained glass, and in 1888 the two remaining chancel windows were also filled in, and at the same time the chancel walls were decorated in spirit-fresco: a new organ was built expressly for the church at a cost of £300: there are sittings for 200 persons.
