St Nicholas Church, Fulbeck

St Nicholas Church, Fulbeck

Much renewed but originally from about 1300. Arcades of three bays with round piers and double chamfered arches. A perpendicular west tower with eight pinnacles, the middle ones on two diagonal projections starting above the transomed twin two light bell openings. A view of the church by Peter Fairweather.

There was probably originally a clerestory of circular windows, there is evidence of part of one blocked on the south side. The present clerestory is perpendicular with a lozenge frieze on the parapet and pinnacles. The side windows were all decorated but much over restored in 1858. The beautiful east window of the chancel in the style of about 1300 is a complete restoration by Charles Kirk in 1887.

There is a group of monuments of about 1680 which are oblong and with curved tops but no figures These are to Sir Francis Fane died 1680 comprising a central urn on a plinth with heraldic shields. Thomas Ball died 1674 who was a faithful Fane servant who had travelled with his master over most European countries. Timothy Thorold a Doctor of Physic and members of his family up to 1680. George Smith who died in 1766 and the memorial is signed by Wallis. Francis Atkinson Died 1795 also signed by Wallis. Thomas Atkinson Died 1805 again by Wallis. Vere Fane who died in 1826 signed by Crake. Sir Henry Fane died 1840 by E. H. Bailey. General Mildmay Fane Died 1868 which is in the north aisle east. This is described as a "strong High Victorian design of crocketed gable over a trefoil supported on pairs of detached columns". There are also some other nice tablets and cast iron grave markers
