I think some of the reviewers on here have confused the Saxon church with the more modern much larger Norman church right next door. The Saxon church is compact, with three connected rooms - each about 10 feet square. Unfortunately, there is no signage or...More

This is a small old Saxon Church and one needs little time to visit it. It is free to enter but there is a donation box in a wall so we put in a couple of quid.

It's always nice to find any place that stretches back in time to the Saxons. But there's little of interest to capture the imagination.

A piece of history, off the main road and easy to get to. Basically bare inside. Interesting to see a church from much earlier times in the UK

Our second visit to the chapel - such an interesting history and delightful tiny building. Had to buy a local history book to find out more!

This is a beautiful small Saxon church, unaltered by subsequent change, certainly worth a few minutes of time to look round. It's located next to a larger church, Holy Trinity, which is directly opposite and also worth a visit.

Much more could have been made of this old building if a bit of imagination had been used with the interior ....so I hope the local heritage association will do something , as this is the oldest church I believe I have visited .

Well worth a visit to this very old but still used Saxon Church/Chapel if in or near Bradford on Avon. Has it ever been used for period TV or Film? If not its well worth a look.

Fantastic old church full of history. We were amazed by the paintings on the walls and the beautiful stained glass windows hundreds of years old but still looking absolutely amazing
