Beautifully presented angle-saxon church - lots of good information available to make the most of the visit. Lovely to find the church open and decorated wonderfully for easter. And swallows already resident in the porch - above a stunning Anglo Saxon rood.

I have been here as a photographer several times at different times of the day and in different seasons. It has a great atmosphere and you can feel the history oozing out of the walls. It is particularly pretty to see when the snow drops carpet most of the graveyard. A must see for all, especially if you are visiting... More

Having taken a trip to see Breamore house (which was closed) we shortly after stumbled upon St Mary's Church so our trip was not totally wasted as Breamore village also boasts an exceptional example of an Anglo Saxon church including Anglo Saxon inscription rather than Latin making highly unusual as many Anglo Saxon churches were destroyed in the Norman conquest...

This must be one of the best preserved saxon village churches in the country. It is in a truly peaceful position. History is everywhere, what the building could tell us if it could speak.

Attended this lovely Church this morning for the funeral of a very old friend. Such a beautiful day, Autumn sunshine, crystal clear blue sky. A county burial, with grace and dignity worthy of the lady departing this world. Reminiscent of Thomas Hardy.

This is an amazing church which is truly worth visiting it is packed with history with a wonderful graveyard covering many different centuries. There are ties to the great war 1914-18 and you can see how whole families gave their sons to this terrible event. Down by the altar are traces of medieval artworks giving evidence to the great age... More

This is one of the most photogenic churches around and so petty inside and out. There are some good walks nearby and the bream ore house collection is always worth a visit.

If I did not have ancestral connections to this church I would probably have missed it, given it is off the main road. A fascinating history, interesting architecture and architectural features. A large number of hatchments and a pretty full graveyard worth wandering about.
