Engraving of the Church printed by Bemrose of Derby
By far the oldest building in Spratton is the church, probably there in Saxon times but enlarged and strengthened in 1120 in the days of Henry I. This simple Norman church consisted only of a nave, but a bell tower was built in about 1195 and a north aisle added. The 14th century south aisle extension is forward of the original building. In 1505 John Chambers (a lord of the manor and descendant of Sir John Swinford) built a chantry chapel on the north side of the chancel (now a vestry holding the organ). The spire was added to the bell tower in the 15th century.
The print shows chest tomb 80 (1793), tombstone 79 (1781), but does not include memorials 73 and 74 - 1872 and 1877 respectively. Therefore it is dated between 1800 and 1870.
