Worth a detour to see the amazing medieval wall paintings. A summary of them is given in the guide that is available in the church, along with some of the church's history.

This small church in the small village of South Leigh, walking distance from Witney and Eynsham, has some very well preserved medieval wall paintings, and enough remains of them remains to give a good impression of how the church, as well as other churches, would...More
