Lovely church that is well looked after. The information for the visitors is good but the windows are why you should visit and they are excellent.

We'd been to see the tiny home of T.E. Lawrence, aka 'Lawrence of Arabia', which is just a few miles from Moreton, and wanted to visit his grave. Lawrence is buried in the churchyard of St. Nicholas Church in the small village of Moreton, and...More

What a beautiful church, tucked away but worth every footstep to go and see. The Windows make the church one of the most beautiful I've seen. So light and welcoming, giving the most wonderful feeling to it.

Amazing etched glass windows by Lawrence Whistler that really need to be looked at in detail with some even macabre scenes but a must if you visit Moreton, along with the Tea Rooms.

A really beautiful church, tucked away in Morten It was bombed in WWII and the stained glass was replaced by etchings which are fantastic and make the Church so light. Good guides, calendars, postcards etc

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.
