Well worth popping into this very old church with its mixture of style over the centuries. The weekend we were there. there were refreshments and snacks on sale inside the church. This is an essential part of a visit to Avebury.

Location indeed is everything and this church has that to a 'T'. Beautiful to view inside and outside and another church and parish that honours its fallen of the two wars, never to be forgotten...

The graveyard is very old and has some really interesting headstones. The church is also very nice to view and provides a great backdrop for the whole stone complex.

Quirky little church, looks bigger than it actually is. Interesting relics inside and a nice cool break from the sun. Very basic but lovely old church with a peaceful ambience.

Thank Nathan P
