Nuffield Church



Nuffield is a small village between Wallingford and Nettlebed in Oxfordshire. It's along a country lane off the main London road. On the outside of the village you will find the Holy Trinity Church. I had gone over there to get a photo of a grave I had found out about. This was a revisit and by chance the church was open so I took the opportunity to get some photos of the inside. Since writing this blog back in 2013 Gerry Anderson who made Thunderbirds service was here before being cremated in Reading and Sir David Frost was buried in the churchyard.









Outside by the road you can see the village war Memorial





 The church itself is flint faced.




Inside I found there was a party of visitors being shown round by the rector.
























The wooden pulpit in the church















 
It also has this wonderful graveslab in the aisle








You can also see a small brass memorial and some wonderful stained glass windows.

















 The Nave and chancel which is plain and very simple

























Like most church's the organ is addition crammed into one side 

















 The stone font though is original and is simple with little carving on it.













Outside the churchyard is well kept and you can see the grave of William Morris or Lord Nuffield who started Morris Garages in Oxford.












Nuffield is a peaceful little village and if the church is open when you visit then take the time to go round and walk round the churchyard as well.

  2. A lovely tour of Nuffield church Bill. I know I have said it before but your photos inspire me to travel to UK more than any travel website or magazine. I really admire the historical portrayal and country scenes.

  4. Yes, nice tour!
    The window you've photographed shows the logos of the four evangelists, and looks like a fine example of late nineteenth century glass

  5. Gorgeous country church! Loved the grave slab in the aisle - that's something we don't do in the States.

  7. Nuffield church is so enchanting. The beauty of simplicity! The grave slab in the aisle surprised me a little as it would be a major walk area.
