St. Nicholas, Chaldon Herring, Dorset


The parish church of St. Nicholas is a small building of stone, consisting of chancel, nave, south aisle, north porch, and an embattled western tower containing 3 bells: in 1879 the church was thoroughly restored and reseated with open benches; the pulpit, lectern, prayer desk, communion table and railings were designed and made by the Rev. William Gildea M.A. rector of Upwey, Dorchester: the ancient font, presumed to be Saxon, was replaced in the church about 1898: there are 160 sittings.
