So to the inside of St.Wystan’s Church, Repton. The Anglo-Saxon church was cruciform and may have had a tower over its central crossing. The nave has Medieval Gothic north and south aisles that were rebuilt in the 13th century and widened early in the 14th century. The west tower and recessed spire were added in 1340. In the 15th century the nave clerestory with its timber roof and the two-storey porch were built and the tower windows were altered. Monuments inside the church include an alabaster effigy of a knight from about 1400 and monuments to members of the Thacker family from 1563 and 1710. The church was restored between 1885 and 1886 by Arthur Blomfield. I'm not sure about those modern lights in this setting and do wonder what the door in the wall above the chancel is all about.
