Wing Church, Buckinghamshire - Saxon Apse & Crypt

Wing Church has an 8th century Saxon crypt with a 9th century Saxon apse, chancel arch and window above it. The nave arcading and north aisle are also 10th and 11th century in date. It was probably a Saxon minster. The rest of the building is largely 14th century in date, with a perpendicular tower. There are a fine set of 15th century fittings including the rood screen, the font and the 'angel' roof. A beautiful little 14th century stained glass window survives in St. Katherine's Chapel featuring the Coronation of the Virgin flanking the arms of the Earls De Warenne. The interior is however dominated by a superb collection of church monuments to the Dormer family and others.
