The Church of St. Mary and St. Nicholas is only a 10min drive from Salisbury, and is truly worth a visit. The church was commissioned by the Bennet family in the mid 1800's, and is unlike usual churches, as it has a Roman theme throughout. Although the Church was built in the 19th Century, some of the columns date back... More

The church may have been built only as "recently" as 1845, and is truly beautiful in its own right, you wonder whether you've ended up in Tuscany rather than Wiltshire. But what makes it truly fabulous is that it also houses the most eclectic and stunning bits of church interiors from France, Italy, Belgium and Denmark, 12th-16th centuries, all perfectly... More

Although tiny this church is quite fascinating. I have never seen such a sparkly and elegant interior outside of Italy . If your passing its definitely worth a short visit .

I love visiting old churches when I'm out and about exploring new places, but this has to be the most unusual church I've found so far in England. The architecture is fantastic (though the tower does look like it belongs in a prison...) and inside are some most amazing mosaics - full of colour and beauty. I love that they... More

There are some interesting things to see here, not least the pillars on the east side! Very ornate, but fascinating sculptures as well.

Well worth a visit. Mosaics, stained glass and elaborately carved stone. Felt very welcoming. Ten commandments, five on either side of the altar and other inscriptions in italic script on stonework inside.

I used to look at this church from my classroom opposite, which in the sixties was a school. I got married there in the seventies and attended my granddaughter's Christening there in 2007. Visit it, it's such a lovely church!
