The church of St. Mary, Bottesford

The Church of St. Mary Bottesford

The Church (St. Mary) is a large and handsome structure of fourteenth and fifteenth century work, and with alterations made after the Reformation, and consists of a nave, a spacious chancel, having clerestory windows, two aisles, south porch, and north and south transept, with a square tower at the west end, and surmounted by a handsome crocketed spire, rising to a height of 222 feet, of which the tower measures 87 feet. The tower contains a fine peal of six bells, re-hung in 1869, of which the tenor weighs 27 cwt.; and there are in the steeple remains of chimes, which used to play every three hours. The church was thoroughly restored, new roofed, and re-seated in 1847, when new windows were inserted and a western arch opened, at a total expenditure of 2300, raised by rate and subscription An organ, built by Messrs. Forster & Andrews, of Hull, was placed in the church in 1859, at a cost of 240, and the tower was then repaired and a lightning conductor affixed, at an outlay of 70, raised by rate and subscription. The tower became so dangerous in 1864 that it was resolved to underpin the foundations with much harder stone, and to increase their projection. Eighty new steps were inserted in the tower in place of other which had broken from the newell and severed from the wall, sinking each of them nearly two inches. These works were completed at the cost of about 1900, defrayed by subscription. The only curiosities found during the repairs were a sanctus bell and some wollen covered balls. Most of the seats are free and open at the ends, and the pulpit is of finely carved oak, dated 1631. The octagonell and rudely sculptured font stands on four heavy balusters. The chancel is 60feet long and 27 broad, and underwent considerable alterations and repairs in the early part of the 16th century, under the direction of Thomas, the first Earl of Rutland, for the reception of the coffins and monumental remains of his ancestors, which he removed from Belvoir Priory after the Dissolution. There are many alabaster effigies and tombs of the Manners family within the chancel. The accounts for the funeral of Thomas Manners 1st Earl of Rutland 1543 show ____To Richard Guy for carriage of two loads of timber from Nottingham to make the hearse at Bottesford 6s. 0d. ______
