This lovely church is tiny, so ancient and after a period of being used for other purposes has been restored to its original function. Free to visit and worth spending a few minutes here. Close to the town bridge and information centre.

In a quiet road near the river stands the Saxon Church built in 1001. There is not a lot to see, but because it has never been modernised in the thousand years of its existence, it preserves a unique "feel" that is well worth experiencing....More

Beautiful little Saxon church. It's very small, so doesn't take long to visit, but it's well worth making the effort as inside is so peaceful and meditative.

The building is only small but is a lovely little church and a wonder it has survived, through several disguises over the centuries. It is one of the highlights of the very interesting town of Bradford-on-Avon.
