Type and Period (1)
A survey to record the round tower of All Saints church, Mettingham was undertaken as part of project to repair and stabilise the structure. The survey results suggest that the original nave and tower and belfry were constructed in three closely spaced phases in the period between the Norman conquest and c.1200. The church continued to be developed and enlarged throughout the 14th - 16th centuries to arrive at its present form. The fitting of the present bell-frame in the late medieval period required the opening up of the top of the tower to lower the bell frame in before rebuilding the belfry around it. Dendro-chronological analysis is to be undertaken to confirm the date of this event (S1).
