This medieval church on the Cotswold Way near Broadway in Gloucestershire has a tall and slender spire that can be seen from all around and is a notable landmark. The building's earliest known feature is a sundial considered to date back to the eleventh century. The early finely carved box pews are an eighteenth-century addition and there is a notable collection of sevententh and eighteenth-century ledger slabs in the church. There are some interesting early post-medieval wallpaintings in the chancel and visitors may also be interested in the Arts and Crafts features that were added in the early twentieth century, including the chancel and north chapel ceilings; the north chapel screen (c 1904 by Ernest Gimson); the north chapel reredos (c 1920 by Alec Miller) and the Chancel chandelier (1911 by Charles Ashbee).
