St. George’s Church, Bradley

Nonetheless, much of the tower was actually built in the 13th Century, including the bell openings and the slit windows near the top.  The current tower however was completed  in the 15th Century.

The porch is from the 14th Century and inside the porch are stone bench seats.  The decorated octagonal font is also from the 14th Century.  It has a moulded pedestal and carved side panels bearing the inscription, "Pater noster, ave maria and criede leren ye chylde yt es nede", which reminds us that there is a need to teach children the prayers starting with ‘Our Father’ and ‘Hail Mary’ as well as the Creed. A north aisle was removed in the mid-late 1700’s.

The current roof, along with the box pews and panelling are all from the 19th Century. At the end of each pew is a tall carved poppy-head.  The two round-headed stained glass windows by Francis Skeat are from the 20th Century. The window in the north aisle is in memory of one of the Tickler family who lived in Bradley Manor at that time. The family made ‘Tickler’s Jams’ and the Latin phrase ‘I am’ has been deliberately written to look like ‘Jam’!

St George's is an ancient church in a small village.  The Church is open around the time of our service, which is every Sunday evening at 6:00. It is a very small and very beautiful Church, with box pews and candles on the end of every pew. Much of this medieval Church is from the 13th Century. This is seen in features such as the piscina, the shallow basin for washing holy vessels, two of which are in the chancel. The tower however certainly has earlier Norman features, especially towards the base.
