Brixworth, All Saints

Brixworth

One of the most important examples of Anglo Saxon in Britain – certainly the largest. The church dates from the late 8th /early 9th century. A basilica with a semi circular apse (originally with an outer half sunk ambulatory). The nave originally surrounded by a series of porticus, separate side chambers. Much though remains of this highly unusual church. The exterior reveals impressive use of Roman building materials – slim bricks, stone and larger pieces of masonry apparently derived from Roman buildings in Leicester and Towcester. The tower especially impressive with an austere almost round staircase tower attached. The interior with white painted walls which emphasise the scale of the Saxon stone arches
