SWANNINGTON Leicestershire
St. George

Chancel, and extension of east end, new choir vestry and porch.

It appears that this was the beginning of a much more extensive project to enlarge the building, as the chancel is now way off centre when compared with the nave. The chancel has some impressive carved roof bosses, and gives an imposing approach to the high altar. The floors were re-done, with typical mosaic tiles in the sanctuary, and red tiles in the chancel. Externally Fellowes Prynne’s addition is obvious in that it is of red brick, and carries the usual details on the roof and external pillars. The roof is steeper-pitched here than for the rest of the building.
