A past cowshed

This small thirteenth-century church in a pretty Cotswold hamlet has had various periods of dereliction and restoration in its long history and even survived a time as a cowshed in the 19th century.

It is built of local limestone, and was once the centre of a village that is now mostly deserted.

The church is entered through a medieval oak door. Inside there are fragments of wall texts, a Jacobean pulpit with hour-glass, a fifteenth-century font and pretty twentieth-century stained glass provided by Ernest and Evelyn Fieldhouse, who were responsible for a major restoration of the church in the 1930s.
