AboutThis is an imposing Medieval church.
A remarkable feature of the church is the collection of Medieval carvings - internally in the form of elegant corbel-heads, roof bosses, and externally in the form of fearsome gargoyles. There are monuments to the local Bowle family, including vicar John Bowle, who edited an edition of Don Quixote. The nave arcades (from the late 13th-century) have an eye-catching striped appearance created by the deliberate use of contrasting bands of stone. Much of the rest of the church is late 14th-century. There is a distinctive clerestory and a two-storey north porch with a steeply pitched roof and fine doorways. The whole building was heavily restored by J L Pearson and Ewan Christian in 1865.
Access via Keyholder - This means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.
