Looking east in St Andrew's Church
Looking east in St Andrew's Church
The south arcade and chancel arch date from around 1400 but along with the rest of the church were reconstructed in 1863 when the north aisle was also added, reusing some of the old material. The east window contains figures by the mid-Victorian glazier Charles Clutterbuck, originally in the chapel of Christ's College in Cambridge but removed here in 1912, and seen in detail in John Salmon's photo TL3655 : St Andrew, Toft - Stained glass window; Norman Scarfe's Shell Guide of 1983 describes them as dreadful.

New hangings with scenes from the ministry of Jesus have brightened this interior since John's visit in 2012 TL3655 : St Andrew, Toft - East end. Wooden angels from the reset 15th-century roof point to the inscription over the arch which reads "Behold, I bring you good tidings, good tidings of great joy."
