A secluded church in a lush valley
One of two medieval churches in a small village off the Salisbury to Devizes road, St George's is attractively secluded in its lush valley.
It is built of flint and stone with a Norman north door and thirteenth-century windows in the nave and chancel. The main windows are Perpendicular, as is the low tower with its fine, tall panelled arch. The Royal Arms are dated 1636 and most of the fittings are Victorian.
