A church filled with wood

Beautiful woodwork fills this 12th-century church, which was almost entirely rebuilt by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1876 for Allesley Boughton-Leigh of nearby Brownsover Hall.

The rebuilding was remarkably sympathetic, for example, the primitive window forms were reproduced or restored, rather than replaced with Scott’s favourite Decorated style.

The church has an interesting and idiosyncratic collection of English and foreign carved woodwork, including a lovely organ case, made in 1660 for St John’s College, Cambridge.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as ‘Keyholder nearby’, 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.

Disabled access

Visitors with disabilities may need some assistance.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
