The church was built about 1220 and the history on the church was hard to find but I came across this from The Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture
"Beedon was held by the Abbey of Abingdon both before and after the Conquest. In 1066 it was assessed at 20 hides and Northmann held it from the abbot, and in 1086 it was assessed at 10 hides and Walter de la Riviere held it from the abbot. 1 hide of this land was held by Alwine in 1066 and Ansketil in 1086. The Domesday Survey records a church, a mill and 100 acres of meadow there too.
Walter de Riviere, or Rivers, and his descendants held the manor from the abbey until the 13thc, and in the early 14thc the Lord was named as Warine de Lisle, who forfeited his lands and his life for treason in 1322.
The church was a chapel of Chievely until the 16thc."
The church is in a nice setting on the edge of the village but was locked but help was at had as I found the key holder and was allowed in so my thanks to the guy who vame around to let me in and tell me some of the history
The church has certainly been renovated during the Victorian era
as it is part flint faces and part rendered on the West and North sides. The North door is also blocked up
The chancel end I might ass show signs of the original windows being replaced with the one you see on the left.
You will have to take my word for it but above the frame you can see the outline curve of the old window, it's even more prominent inside but I forgot to take photos I'm afraid
The chancel end with it's three windows
Odd looking photo showing the font and coverings over the curtains at the back
and the altar
if you look you can see the head of a snake one side
and it tail the other
One of the memorials in the church and a list of past clergy
Think this is the only other memorial here
The churchyard is quite large here looking west
and around to the Norths side
Quite a few parts have been left to go back to nature containing the older headstones
A cast cross my the church
Another Westerly view
around in the North side of the church
Across the road in is the extension
Where you can also see the war Memorial
The War memorial
View west in the cemetery
Above a wooden cross that does not look like it will be standing much longer
