A charming church on the bank of the Thames

This charming little flint church, close to the east bank of the Thames, can be reached by The Ridgeway Path from Wallingford Bridge, which leads on to Mongewell, another Trust church.

Built in the 12th- and 13th- centuries, its Norman origins can be seen in the north doorway and chancel arch. Limewashed walls set off the delicate stained glass.

Restoration in 1849 removed much else but left some handsome woodwork, including the Medieval roofs and a Jacobean pulpit and communion table.

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.

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.
