Church Pullay

 

 

The rectangular church at Pullay, originally of Romanesque style, was largely rebuilt in flint in the 17th Century. The only visible remains of the early structure are a buttress on the north side of the nave and parts of the original ‘grison’ stone walls (local ferruginous flint conglomerate). To the west, the square bell tower is flanked by belfry windows and topped by a four-sided spire (bell tower built in 1626).

The most interesting features of the church are the three oblong bays of the south aisle which were added at the beginning of the 16th Century. The bays are linked by three pointed arches supported by octagonal pillars. The flint and stone walls of the church include three gables, each with a roof that sits perpendicular to the roof of the nave. Three stellar vaults with eight tiercerons each were added towards the mid 16th Century. The Henry II-style sculpted decoration, similar to the style of vaults found in Saint Hilaire’s Church in Tillières-sur-Avre, provides the church with an overall elegant appearance. The south aisle has been listed as ‘monument historique‘ since 1932.
