Teversham All Saints


The Parish

The parish of teversham lies in south central Cambridgeshire, about 3 miles east of city of Cambridge. Teversham is a small and compact village which has just managed to retain a separate identity from the growing suburbs of the expanding city. Teversham is located just a half mile south of the A1303 road which connects Cambridge to the eastbound A14 cross-country road, the former route of the Cambridge to Newmarket road. At the time of this transcript Teversham would have been a farming community distinct from the nearby city, today it is very much a home for commuter to the businesses and colleges of Cambridge. Teversham is drained northwards by numerous drains and channels funneling via the Quy Water to the Cam and the Great Ouse to reach the North Sea through The Wash. Teversham is sited at just 10 metres above the sea land rises only gently to the south to local heights of 70 metres on the Gog Magog Hills about 4 miles south. Teversham parish was fairly typically sized for its area, covering just under 1,200 acres it would have supported a population of a little over 200 parishioners. In Domesday times Teversham, held by Ely Abbey, Count Alan of Brittany & John the son of Waleran, was a relatively small place offering collectively 7 plough together with a small meadow.

The Church

All Saints' church sits at the northern end of the village on the eastern side of the lane leading to the Newmarket Road, Church Road. The church has its origins in the early English Gothic era of the early 13th century. Much of the body of the building thus dates from this period. Pevsner cites lancet window of the chancel together with stiff-leaf capitals as evidence for this early date. There are indications of the original nave being longer and probably in the Decorated style of the late 13th century. The western tower is later and Perpendicular in style. Much was, however, amended and refreshed by an extensive restoration in the late 1880s which removed much of the church's dating evidence. The church has a large area of rough ground at the southern end of the site for parking and sits behind a waist-height brick wall. Metal gates give way to the churchyard, the church is, however, sited towards the northern end of the churchyard and bordering trees rather obscure the best views of the tower.
