Back to St Laurence's Church, Blackmore

Image Description

Seriously, though, this really is one of the finest, if not the finest timber church tower in the country. This claim is upheld by Pevsner and many others. The tower consists of a lower storey with three lean-to roofs on each of the N, E and S sides. Directly above is an area of square weatherboarding. Above this, is another storey with four lean-to roofs, followed by what is a more common sight in this county - a square bell stage, topped with a shingled broach spire.
