Monuments

West windowThe west window

The fabric of St. Andrew's has remained virtually untouched since the end of the Middle Ages; the church did not suffer any major Victorian make-over, unlike some churches in the area. There are however, the east end lancet widows and, most strikingly, the west end stained glass window showing the twelve disciples (St. Matthias having replaced Judas the traitor) together with St. Paul, St. John the Baptist and St. Barnabas. This very fine window was installed in 1854 by the Commissioners of the Black Sluice Drainage Board, in recognition of the 50 years service as Clerk given to the Board by Benjamin Smith, a native of Horbling, "a token of esteem for his public and private character".

This is one of a number of interesting monuments in the church. On the north wall there is a brass plate to the memory of a local solicitor, Benjamin Wilkinson, informing us that he died in 1848 "from over application to business".

 The East Window

The East window above the altarThe East window is dedicated to The Revd. Plumpton Stravenson Wilson, grandfather of Archbishop Michael Ramsey, and Vicar of Horbling from 1876 to 1909.

There are several monuments of interest as you walk up the Chancel towards the High Altar, where you will also see the sedilia and piscine.
