Dramatic marshland views and grimacing gargoyles
A solitary, partially ruined Norman church stands alone on a hill above the Roman port of Axium.
The steep climb to the church is rewarded with views over the marshes and the Bristol Channel.
Look out for grimacing gargoyles and scratched sundials.
Stunningly detailed medieval wall paintings
A Victorian masterpiece returned to the community
A pair of eccentric churches
Up a steep very long grass slope to the churchyard entrance, then a sloping tarmac porch with a level entrance into a flagstone – floored porch and one step down to the nave and chancel. Please could visitors take care on the hill, not owned by the trust, on which the church sits. Sensible footwear advised.
