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

A tiny Saxon church but well worth a visit to soak up all the history. It's beautifully interesting.

Beautiful in its simplicity, this little church is a perfect place for calm reflection. An easy walk from the town center, we very much enjoyed spending a bit of time here on a recent snowy day. The play of shadows and sunlight inside the very thick walls make for some interesting photos. This place won't take your breath away as some cathedrals will, but it's lovely to visit, have a seat, and contemplate how long others have been gathering there to worship.
