First time I had been inside the church. It has a lovely feel inside and we spent some quiet time here. It's lovely inside with some beautiful features of artwork and stained glass windows. Well worth a visit.

Some lovely Christmas Community displays and even crayons and paper to entertain small visitors. Our Granddaughter enjoyed writing some messages to add to a tree of messages this all enhanced a visit inside a beautiful country church located near to Avebury Manor

A lovely church for a quick look around, with a stunning screen. No charge, unless you park in the National Trust carpark!
