One of the best of the churches for miles around. Wonderful history, beautiful peaceful interior. Very enjoyable services, too.

I used to walk past this little church every day on the way to work and I love the checkerboard tower. Its actually very old and has quite an interesting history. The oldest part is the door which dates from Saxon times and the main part of the church is 11th century. The checkerboard tower is newer and was made in the 16th century from stone taken from the destroyed Reading abbey. The church is in St Mary's Butts (apparently named after a place where archery was practiced) and the tourist information is located just behind the church.
