Church with a curious spire near the White Horse

The fourteenth-century St Mary's lies down a pretty wooded lane near the river Biss, on one of the many walking paths to the Westbury White Horse.

This delightful little church is approached through a railway arch that opens out onto a simple churchyard, revealing an unusual church - squat yet pretty, with a tiny stone spire like an inverted ice cream cone.

Inside, little has changed since the eighteenth century and is crowded with plain, bleached box pews, some built on the original Medieval benches, a three-decker pulpit, family pews and two small galleries. The gallery north of the chancel was once used as a schoolroom and contains a fireplace.
