“Lovely little church”

Saint Lawrence Church
Reviewed 14 November 2011

Not very big, but it is a little gem tucked away in the lanes, that you can easily miss. But it is definitely worth a visit.

Not a huge lot to see, but a lovely little church by the walk-through to Market Square from the Buttercross. You can tell how old this building is by the way the v.old buildings on the High Street side are literally leant up against it (apparently they had to spend lots of money making it more stable and secure when they discovered this fairly recently). Definitely pop in, but I wouldn't expect you to spend more than a few minutes there. Oh, and don't miss the oldest bit of all - the small lion's head that sticks out of the wall to the top/right as you look back towards the entrance.

As a great admirer of Winchester for many years who was involved in the restoration of stained glass over a long period , it is always a great surprise to find no mention in your columns or indeed by your visitors on the smaller churches , St Lawrence church just off the square is not as well portrayed as the cathedral and other larger churches, yet this tiny jewel tucked away in the corner is still the mother church of Winchester! It was some years ago that two stained glass windows were discovered ( hidden away from the onslaught of Oliver Cromwell !) they were duly repaired and replaced in their original position, it is known that one other is still missing. These 'little nuggets' of Winchesters history would much enthrall any visitor , perhaps your column might go some way to enlighten them?
