So glad to not have missed seeing this beautiful church and grounds. I understand that parts of it date from 1168. Not to be missed if visiting Chipping Campden.

in an ideal setting this church held a strategic position at the end of the village. Inside were some medieval relics which were kept behind drapes for protection but could be viewed with care. Views around the church were well worth seeing especially as the sun was shining brilliantly..

Lovely bright open interior with plenty of information boards to tell you everything you might want to know. Lovely stained glass windows. Beautiful tower and exterior too. " ...with pinnacles topping the diagonal buttresses and a pierced parapet with ogee arches..." says it better than I can!

well worth a walk to this gorgeous church. take the time to walk out on the shipston-on-stour road and see both the church and the East Banqueting house (which you can rent to stay in via the Landmark Trust) from the rear. Best time to take photos of this breath taking view is morning time when the sun shines directly on the fabulous stone. Classic view for any budding photographers
