The correct name is Parish of St May& St Nicholas Compton. A place I visited when on the search for remnants of the Didcot, Newbury & Southampton Railway. Compton had a station which was near the Church across a field, so who am I to pas one by when the door is open.
The church sign prominent beside the road
The belltower which as you see is flint faced and on the right the chancel end of the church with buttress and small windows
As ever on most English churches you find a blocked doorway which is where the peasants used to come through. The main entrance is through the porch
Inside you find arches and pews
A chapel is in the north aisle through the arches. The nave &chancel has some wonderful floor times
The photo could be better as I did not use a tripod
like I do now but shows the altar and stained glass windows you saw in a previous photo of the outside
Turning round you can look down the nave where you can see a wonderful carved wood pulpit
Never found out how old this trunk was but I suspect 15 or1600
Inscription painted on the wall
Since visiting the Church a New Lych gate has been built, I will get a photos when I am over that way.
Though there were some nice memorials
This I think was the memorials for the cremations which looks like it has seen better days, mind you it was February
