St George


The church comprises west tower with spire, nave, south aisle, south porch and chancel.

The core fabric dates from the C14 and C15.

The chancel was restored in 1866-7 by G. E. Street. Kelly's Directory of Nottinghamshire (1904) summarises the various restoration works in the late 19th century:

'... the church was partially restored in 1877, and was further restored in 1886, when the church was refloored, new oak benches were placed in the nave and a new roof put on the south aisle, at a cost of over £500; the spire having been injured by lightning, was restored in 1893 at a cost of £30...'

Pevsner (2020) suggests that the 1877 and 1886 restorations were supervised by Nottingham architect, T. C. Hine, and that the architect C. M. Oldrid Scott worked here in the 1930s.
