  • What's nearby
A church for the parish poor.  This magnificent Victorian church was built in a fabulously ornate medieval style and was intended for the poor of the parish, who could not afford to pay for seats in Tetbury's other church, St Mary's. Constructed of local stone and Cotswold slates, it was designed by a local architect Samuel Dawkes, assisted by A W Pugin and John Hardman.

  • Access information
    Through a lych gate from the path by the main road, along a level tarmac path to a level entrance to the south porch (worn but level stone floor). One step through south door to a stone nave floor. One step through screen to tiled flagstone and wood floored chancel, three further steps to altar platform.
  • Facilities & Hire
