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

I'm not into religious stuff but the Saxon church in BoA is well worth a visit. Small, well maintained and charming. It's centrally located and only takes about 20 minutes to thoroughly check it out. Recommended.

In the middle of Bradford-on-Avon this historic site is a little gem. It's old, small and well maintained. Adds to the charm of this wonderful village. Pop in and have a look.
