Full Description

A church all modest 1828 except the tower. The original transepts (arches visible outside) were then pulled down and the nave entirely rebuilt by Mr. Nicholson of Southwell. The only interesting Med remains are the herringbone masonry of the crossing tower, the opening from it into the nave, and the mid-C13 tower arches. Was a C12 tower made central in the C13? Restoration 1896 by Hodgson Fowler. (1)
Colonel Thomas Blackborne Thoroton-Hildyard … rebuilt Flintham Church. He had pulled down the nave, south aisle and transepts, built a new nave and was preparing to remove the chancel when 'death put paid to his pious intentions'. (2)
