St Nicholas's Church, St Nicholas At Wade  Church

Image Source: John Vigar

 

An altogether impressive church with tall SW tower. Above the porch is a room reached by a lovely wooden ladder, whilst over the door is a large Royal Arms. The nave has some most unusual Norman carving, and has obviously been much altered. There are some nice little green-men type carvings on the capitals. The seventeenth century pulpit is unusual in that it is attached to the wall and prominently dated. The north Bridges chapel contains many monuments to that family including a chest tomb that appears to be a 20th century rebuild. It is separated from the north aisle by a 14th century screen. Two hatchments hang high on the chapel west wall.
