From the Church website:-
St Andrew’s Church, Stockton-on-Teme, is a Norman church built in 1120, standing in a circular Saxon churchyard. The single aisle church has several unusual features. The wooden porch and the roof beams and trusses of the nave are 14th century. On either side of the chancel arch are two carved figures, one of the Angus Dei, and the other of a wolf or lion. There is a squint on the right hand side of the arch. By the altar is an unusual wooden tomb to Thomas Walshe (1593) whose father was chancellor to Henry VIII. It has the appearance of marble. There is also the tomb of Redulphus the first recorded Rector of Stockton, who took up his office on 12th November 1284.
