Cherubs bathe in coloured light
This pretty Medieval church is set in the grounds of Knowlton Court manor house. It is Medieval in origin but outwardly Victorian. The lovely interior features: carved wood; marble monuments including one commemorating the sons-in-law of Sir Cloudesley Shovel and ascribed to Grinling Gibbons; beautiful stained glass by Lavors, Barrand and Westlake that fills the church with coloured light.
Facilities & Hire
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.
