This is arguably an atypical British country church, however its location in such a lovely small town, close to not only the beautiful countryside around it, but also Bath and Bathampton, makes for an interesting visit. Visit on a Saturday in summer and you may be lucky enough to see a bride and groom emerging on her their big day!

All Australians owe their nationality & lifestyle to this man who led the First Fleet of a handful of ships to Australia in 1788 to establish the penal colony & first British settlement in Australia in Sydney Cove.
Largely an unsung hero in the UK, his grave inside this church was actually forgotten & lost for over a hundred years after his death until its rediscovery in the early twentieth century, when a small memmorial was financed by Australia to comemorate this significant person in the country's history. There is a small chapel inside the church telling his story.
The church is about 4 miles outside Bath and would be most easily visited by car. Each year around Phillip's birthday on 11 October, there is a sort of Australia day celebration to comemorate the man, attended by Australia's ambassador to UK and other officials.
IN SUMMARY, while his grave is not marked by any spectacular monument, any Australian with an interest in their history will gain satisfaction from paying their respects to our founder in a sense, as well as learning what Cpt, Admiral by the time he died, Phillip did after he returned to England.
