Visiting this church was a spur of the minute idea and not one of my best, I had looked at the weather and wondered if I would miss the rain, sadly I did not and got wet in the process. I also wondered if the church would be open and did not find out beforehand. Looking at Wikipedia I found a little history.
"The Church of England parish church of Saint Peter is Grade I listed. It has some twelfth-century parts and a turret with two medieval chiming bells. Noteworthy is the tympanum of the church, with a Romanesque relief depicting the ascension of Alexander the Great to the sky, a legendary episode from a version of the so called Pseudo-Callisthenes (the Alexander Romance).
Along with the churches of Longworth, Hinton Waldrist, Lyford, Buckland, Pusey and Littleworth, it is part of the Benefice of Cherbury with Gainfield."
It was just starting to drizzle as I got out of the car and I thought I might get a few photos before the rain came down. The church as you can see is near the road
The West end and above the small tower
Above the North side and from the look an aisle
Left the church looking from the churchyard
Above the carved arch showing the church is older that it looks from the road. The door was locked so I had a look around the churchyard
Looking West I noticed a Commonwealth War Grave
Above a simple wood cross marking William Percy James Miles, the small brass cap badge marking him as serving in the forces
Right looking East towards the far end of the churchyard
This large chest tomb stood out near the church
Above a stitch view of the East end of the churchyard, the headstones here are more recent.
Right what looks like parts of a tomb stacked on the grave, the owner long forgotten about
Looking down to the East end of the church, rain spots evident on the pictures
Looking across towards the Chest tomb
