Before I start my epic tour of the 7 Churches I visited near Swindon a week ago I am returning to some churches I forgot to post in 2021. The first one is a beautiful little church I visited back in 2020 which is not far from Faringdon. I can only think the reason I forgot to post them is because they were taken near the end of November and I stop writing my blogs a few weeks later for a Christmas break, then as I do my review in January I forgot about them.
Some history of Wikipedia if you did not see the first post on the church :- " The Church of England parish church of All Saints' has an Early English nave that was built in the 13th century. The present chancel is a late 16th-century Tudor addition. The church has a king post roof. The vestry on the north side of the church and the bell-turret on the nave gable were added in the 19th century. All Saints' is a chapelry of the parish of St Denys, Stanford in the Vale. All Saints' building is Grade II* listed"
This is the church how I saw in in 2020 with the door locked. After visiting a nearby church in 2021 I sopped off here and this time was delighted to find the door opened.
These were all taken using my iphone and this is the church how it looked when I walked in
Going to the back and a view from behind the font
The altar covering showing a couple of monks and geese I could not tell you the reason for it
Looking towards the rear of the church
which shows the church
And the only other window with stained glass in the church
The bible on the pulpit
Some of the other features in the church
Along the south wall you can see these straw crosses, some of the better ones I seen
The roll of honour for the church
It is only a small village so back then the lost would have been devastating for it
Noticed a couple of old tombs in the church
Collage showing some of the roof work in the church
and the faces on the corbels around the church
A few churches have these on the walls
