Church of St Andrew

The Church of St Andrew perches above the Nene.  A small amount of Saxon herring-bone masonry is retained in the Norman nave.  This masonry belongs to an earlier church built no later than the 11th century, probably a small aisleless building of nave and chancel.  The early 13th century nave, in spite of the later clerestory, is small and dark, in contrast with the lofty, light and open chancel built in 1337 with leaf-shaped tracery in the windows.  This is the only remaining part of a much larger collegiate establishment founded here by John Gifford in the 14th century.
