Superb history

If you are passing through Corhampton on the A32, pause awhile to visit the lovely Saxon church. The gallery at the back is particularly interesting.

Well looked after and with occasional educational reenactments, this 'working' church is beautiful. Worth a visit.

A beautiful Saxon Church, mentioned in the Doomday Book. Tiny, but radiates peace and tranquility. Very worth a visit.

Saw a sign for a Saxon Church and found the car park between some houses. It was full of interest- a wall painting of St Swithun restoring some broken eggs, look carefully you can see the eggs falling and a Roman grave in the church yard. The church is not dedicated to a saint so has no name. A very... More

A truly beautiful little church that is full of history and dates back to Saxon times, it is still in use and its good to see such a piece of history being used and maintained to this day. Well worth looking at if in the area.

I am writing this retrospectively having had the pleasure of singing in this beautiful church last year. It is a small yet perfectly formed example of our forebearers who inhabited the Meon Valley in the 12th century. The beautiful stone walls provide a superb acoustic opportunity and the paintings well worth scrutinising as is the ancient yew tree in the... More

I stumbled upon this church while visiting friends in Meonstoke. It struck me as gorgeous and important, but it was only when I got home that I found that it was nearly 1000 years old. (I know, "Saxon." But I did not know that meant LITERALLY Saxon.) Check out http://www.bridgechurches.org.uk/church_corhampton.htm and then go see this lovely edifice.

Over a thousand years of history here in this tiny, unspoilt Saxon church. Fascinating surviving wall paintings. A very unusual, almost unique fact is that in over 1000 years this church has never had a dedication - it is just 'Corhampton Church'. Oh, and don't miss the aged yew tree outside - looks as old as the church!

If you have not stopped for this unspoiled Saxon Church then do so. Relatively left alone by modernisers over the years. A rare example of a church not dedicated to a Saint or Holy figure.
