visited after seeing the Castle. Really lovely. Excellent stone Rood screen, wall paintings, and alabaster tombs etc. Wish i could have spent longer. Peaceful spot, lots of old tombstones in the Churchyard. A must if you like Churches.

Visited St Mary's Church while visiting Berkeley Castle as the Church is right next door, this Church is full of History with some very old tombs and graves, including members of the Berkeley Family. The walls unlike other Churches where they are white washed show...More
