History of St Nicholas, Great Doddington, Northamptonshire.

St Nicholas’ church was founded in the early 12th century, as a nave, with north transept, chancel and west tower.  The tower’s height was increased late in the 12th century.  Early in the 13th century, the chancel was rebuilt, probably with an increase to its length.  The chancel’s length was again extended, by 8 feet, between 1290 and 1300.  Early in the 14th century the aisles appear, leaving only the upper walls of the nave, above the arcading, a scalloped capital near the south door and the lower part of the tower, from the original 12th century church. From the style of pillars, especially that of the easternmost pillar on the south side, it appears that the aisles may have been started earlier,  but only completed at this point.  It  looks to me as if the locals had 100 year budgetary cycle, as yet again, in the early part of the 15th century, the clerestory was added, this changed the pitch of the roof from steep to shallow - the table that supported the old roof is still visible on the east wall of the west tower.

St Nicholas does not, as of October 2008, appear to have an its own website, but some useful information can be obtained from the Great Doddington site.
