Eriswell Church using 3D VRML Technology

If you do not see anything above, you need to install Cosmo player
which is on this CD. You will be asked if you wish to run the program or save it, choose run and then answer yes to the system check.

The church of St. Lawrence at Eriswell comprises nave, chancel, tower and porch, all 14c,and a13c,south aisle. Normally the aisle is an addition to an existing church, but at Eriswell the process was reversed. The 13c chancel became the Guild chapel of St. John at the east end of the aisle, which was the original nave. An external progress around the church will show the architectural differences between the two centuries. The original chancel window at the east end is of 13c Early English style and is of simple 'y' tracery ,simple yet beautiful when viewed in the right light. The south wall shows lancet windows of the same age and more 'y' tracery. At the west end the transition from 13c to 14c to appear along with the 14c tower. Windows on the north side become more elaborate, then the 14c window in the chancel, side by side with it's earlier neighbour, demonstrating the contrast in styles. The old chancel window must be viewed from the inside in fading light, or better still against a background of dark thunder clouds!
