East Lexham church exreriorSt Andrew’s round tower is almost entirely Saxon, the area below the parapet was built pre conquest indeed there is speculation that it was built around 900 A.D. which would make it the oldest surviving round tower in the country. Although the interior was renovated in the 19th century medieval artefacts remain including the Perpendicular piscina and the 15th century font. Only the Perpendicular east window contains stained glass, which was inserted during the Victorian renovation.
