Wittering, All Saints, Huntingdonshire, *

“Wittering has its astonishing Saxon arch. This arch, dated from the mid 10th century, wholly dominates the interior. It was joined in the 12th century by two more arches forming a north arcade. Norman in style they are like tow promiscuous daughters overlooked by a disapproving grandparent. The Saxon arch is not of any obvious family and appears to have been roughly fashioned by masons on the spot. It displays tremendous fair.”
