Opening times:
St Swithun’s is now closed to visitors while we undertake essential repair and conservation work as part of the Sound & Art at St Swithun’s project. The building will be open to the public from Easter 2020. We will be running a number of open days and hard hat tours during the closure - fascinating opportunities to see ‘behind the scenes’ conservation in action. We are finalising the dates and will be sharing the dates here very soon. Thanks to the Heritage Fund and all our funders and supporters.

Georgian splendour at its finest

This town centre church of St Swithun, rebuilt in 1734 is an elegant, perfectly preserved early Georgian gem. Inside, it is airy and open with box pews, a gallery and an attractive arched ceiling.

The carved three-decker pulpit, topped by a gilded pelican feeding her young, is a work of art, and the 1795 organ by the Gray Brothers of London is Grade I listed. The tall Tudor tower remains from the old church.
