1848 - Engraving of Spratton Church by W. F. Wilkinson
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. Major restoration, under the supervision of G C Scott took place in 1846-7.
