St Nicholas, Corfe, Somerset

Entirely rebuilt neo-Norman of 1842, presumably to match the original font inside. The tower and aisle added 1858. Open and quite fun. Of course the Norman theme is taken to absurd lengths - interlace on the pews, arched decoration on the stalls and outside on the odd piece of wall jutting eastwards from the chancel, and even one tomb chest in the churchyard.
