St Nicholas' Church, Berwick Bassett, Wiltshire
- What's nearby
A modest, simple and secluded church
Situated by a farmyard to the north of Avebury and near the Ridgeway, this modest church is essentially fourteenth century in origin, although the font suggests an earlier structure.
The interior is light and simple; its nave is medieval, as is the chancel, though it was later rebuilt in brick with the old window openings retained. The low tower has a Victorian top and there is an pretty fifteenth-century screen inside the church.
