Graveley, Cambridgeshire

St Botolph, open, is possibly one of the darkest interiors I've visited and also one of the dullest, having said that I did like the Abbott & Co east window. Externally dull also and difficult to photograph doe to the light and tiny graveyard.

ST BOTOLPH. Perp W tower with diagonal buttresses with many set-offs. The N aisle was Dec, but as it was demolished at some later date we can only guess at its appearance from the exposed octagonal piers which without capitals ran on into the arches. Hood-moulds with head-corbels. Chancel arch 1870, plain chancel of brick built shortly after 1733. - MONUMENT. Rev. Henry Trotter d. 1765 (who ‘beautified’ the chancel). With a very chastely designed urn against an obelisk. Signed by John Dixon of London.
