The graveyard is very old and has some really interesting headstones. The church is also very nice to view and provides a great backdrop for the whole stone complex.

Quirky little church, looks bigger than it actually is. Interesting relics inside and a nice cool break from the sun. Very basic but lovely old church with a peaceful ambience.

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
