Tidmash St Laurence

I though as were were in this area for the last few blogs I'd bring this one of  St Laurence in as it was taken a few years ago as well. On the time of my visit the church was having a service so is on the cards fro a revisit.
St Laurenece is part of of the Pangbourne Churches group much-rebuilt 12th Century church is dedicated to St Laurence. The Norman doorway of the church of the date of its construction is particularly noted in its listing as is a "very rare 13th century polygonal apse". It includes 13th century lancet windows to left and right

Above the view of the church as you walk past to the entrance

Above the west end and on the left the North side of the church with the bellcote on the West end

Further around towards the West end

Looking up to the Chancel cross

View along towards the porch, and right the weather vane on top the Bellcote

Above the entrance porch which I did not realise at the time was Norman. On the left the churchyard looking a little jaded in the winter

Around the North side of the church is this part you can see

More older headstone on the wall side of the path coming from the road

Above an unusual cross with lilly s entwined round it

My favourite find of the day was this angel

And I will leave you with this view of another unusual cross.
Hopefully I will return now I know where I can park my car and bring some views of the inside.

Have a Peaceful Weekend.


  1. Hi Bill, Enjoyed all the pictures. Hard for me to wrap my mind around how old this church is. Amazing! Thanks, as always, for sharing.

  2. Your favourite find of the day is mine also.
