Heavenly contrast after visiting nearby Tank museum! Well worth seeing the unusual etched windows, brilliantly crafted allowing diffused light into this pretty church. The old school ,now a teahouse is also atmospheric making it all a worthwhile short trip.

This church is beautiful. It has wonderful etched windows which make the church light and bright. It is worth taking a good look at the windows and reading the history of the building.

The main thing visitors go to see are the windows with the beautiful Whistler engravings. Busy at weekends. Don't miss it if you are in mid-Dorset. Not far from Laurence of Arabia's old home.

An interesting church to visit with a peaceful ambience. The Laurence Whistler commissioned windows are very unusual and stunning, ensuring the interior is full of light. Make sure to search for the illusive thirteenth! Even the floor tiles are beautiful. A visit is highly recommended.

A quaint, small village church, very well kept, with stunning windows. A small churchyard in a lovely setting.

Beautiful little church up a private road but you can walk up it. Well worth a visit. Sadly wasn't open when we arrived but the windows look stunning!

We had just visited Clouds Hill and came on to see Both the Church and also see the grave of Lawrence of Arabia. Unbeknown to us it was also the day of of his birth. A truly moving day

You walk down the lane that says “private lane”,and 50 metres in on your right this small but perfect church sits. Bombed out in WWII the chuch’s rebuild gave an opportunity for much innovation. The windows are etched in clear glass and the pale blue...More
