Chipping Norton - church - interior nave and clerestory 2
Chipping Norton - church - interior nave and clerestory 2
Chipping Norton is an attractive and welcoming market town in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, and seems to have escaped the homogenisation and loss of local character that has blighted many country towns. Tucked away along Church Street is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, one of the most impressive of the Cotswold 'wool-Gothic' churches which were funded by the lucrative proceeds of of the medieval wool trade. The original church dates from the twelfth century, although all that survives from this first Norman building are two arches and a round pillar. By the fifteenth century Chipping Norton was flourishing as a wool town. The prosperous wood merchants who belonged to the Guild of the Holy Trinity had already funded the construction of a grammar school, guildhall and almshouses, and now decided that the town should have a parish church matching its status. John Smyth of Canterbury was employed to rebuild the church around 1450. Smyth, who had also designed the chapel at Eton College, brought all his architectural genius to bear at Chipping Norton. His Gothic-style nave is spacious and lofty, and is flooded with light from the clerestory running the full length of the nave (a clerestory or 'clear storey' is the upper level of a church with large windows of usually clear glass to allow in natural light). The delicate pillars which soar up to the roof are similar in style to those at Canterbury Cathedral, and the walls are covered with intricately carved mouldings and geometric designs. The chancel arch, separating the nave from the chancel, is surmounted by a large window with delicate stone tracery, an architectural feature common to Cotswold wool-Gothic churches. The chancel itself is not as impressive than the nave; as the chancel was reserved for the clergy and the nave for the laity (in this case the local wool merchants who were funding its rebuilding), it is perhaps understandable that the church's wealthy patrons would have concentrated more on the splendour of their own area of the church. In the south aisle, the glorious Creation Window, made up of ninety-eight separate openings, is believed to have come from nearby Bruern Abbey after the Reformation (note how the window looks look big for its wall); unfortunately the medieval stained-glass did not survive, but the present glass is a good Victorian replacement by Cayton & Bell. As you leave the church by the south porch, which dates from the fourteenth century and is one of only three remaining hexagonal porches in the country, look up at the roof-bosses carved with figures gazing down on you: there is a sheep devouring a wolf, a green man and several grotesque grinning demons. Finally, pause in the churchyard to consider the fate of a former vicar, Henry Joyce, who in 1549 helped lead the Oxfordshire Rising against the introduction of the new Book of Common Prayer: as punishment, Joyce was hung in chains from his own church tower until he died.
