Churches which still retain west gallery features or connections

Great Casterton, St Peter & St Paul A unrestored 13th C. church, which is large, plastered and whitewashed. Goergian pulpit and clear glass in windows. Further details sought.
Teigh, Holy Trinity "Tower 14th C., but plastered over in 1782 when the rest of the church was rebuilt. Internally everything is 18th C., with box-pews facing each other. At the west end a triple grouping of pulpit, reading desk and clerk's desk, with Lord's Prayer and Creed on either side. Commandments on east wall Small font used to be fixed to the altar rails (very characteristic of the period) but recently [1958] removed by someone with lack of knowledge. Plasterd ceilings, Gothick window tracery, mostly clear glass. Those who like 18th C. churches will like Teigh very much . . . "(W G Hoskins in CEPC, 1958)

Churches which are known to have had west gallery features or connections

Normanton, St Matthew 1764 church drastically remodelled in 1911 when the Georgian nave and chancel were replaced in a style conforming to the tower which itself had only been added in 1826. It would appear the gallery was removed at that time.
