Summary Description

Holy Cross church in the parish of Binsted is a large medieval structure. The large nave and the chancel’s west half date from c. 1140. Low north and south naves, and possibly the low gruff west tower, were added later, between 1180-95 according to W.G. Horseman. Simultaneously, and most unusually, large two bay chancel chapels with pitched roofs were also added.
