History of St Peter’s & St Paul’s Church in Barnby Dun

Barnby Dun Church, is dedicated to St Peter and St Paul. It is a uniform building with a tower at the west end; a porch on the south side, which is usual; north and south aisles; a nave and a chancel. It is chiefly 14th Century, the tower is a hundred years younger and extensive rebuilding was carried out during the 19th Century.

The earliest definite information of a church in Barnby Dun is to be found in the Domesday Book: in it we read that “in Barnby Dun a priest is there and a church.”The church would have built first of timber then and later, when conditions improved, of stone found locally. Since there is no stone around Barnby Dun, the Church was probably built of rubble and pebbles (cobbles) dug up during ploughing. The building would probably been a simple two celled rectangular structure of aisleless nave and square ended chancel erected on the same site as the previous timber building, it being consecrated ground. The roof was no doubt thatched and the floor was just the bare earth covered with reeds or rushes collected from the river or the marshes nearby. These would be periodically changed to prevent too much dirt being spread around. It is thought that this early church building was incorporated in the later structure in that the rubble, etc., was used in the lower sections of the inner walls economise on stone which had to be brought up river by boat.

This shot was taken with Caon 50d sigma10-20mm lens @ 10mm using three shots and processed with photomatix and finished in PS4

I love to see the world through the lens of my camera and capture some of the great memories I see. Hopefully my profile will give you an insight into the things I like to photograph
