Beautiful little Saxon church. It's very small, so doesn't take long to visit, but it's well worth making the effort as inside is so peaceful and meditative.

Spent a peaceful time here sitting quietly in this delightful old church. Not as imposing as it's neighbour but what is lacks in stature it makes up for in atmosphere.
Well worth a visit.

This ancient building is intact. I could imagine back then a dozen or so villagers filling up this church. A place to just sit and meditate. In a pretty location.

We walked part of the Kennet and Avon canal from Bradford-on-Avon to Avoncliff and then returned to the town via the Saxon church of St. Laurence, which was founded by St. Aldhelm, Abbot of Malmesbury in AD700. The present building dates back to the 10th century and is well worth a visit.

The building is only small but is a lovely little church and a wonder it has survived, through several disguises over the centuries. It is one of the highlights of the very interesting town of Bradford-on-Avon.
